Parkett #49 – Laurie Anderson, Douglas Gordon, Jeff Wall, Gary Hume

Douglas Gordon exposes certain time-based effects that are at the root of our sense of psychological security. This process is implemented by re-emphasizing key elements from carefully researched material, as well as using specially made video and film footage to restructure the mass of connections that influence an artist’s activity. What could be described as aestheticising the dynamic of trauma and reassurance has been combined with an ongoing desire to acknowledge his position as a self-conscious artist working within the specific power structures of the art world. –Liam Gillick, Parkett No. 49, 1997
