The Institut welcomes a small selection of video works by Florian and Michael Quistrebert as part of the exhibition dedicated to the collaborative French brothers at Dundee Contemporary Arts.
Amnesic cisenmA (2011) is a three screen video installation. The mirroring words in the title reflect the recurrence of symmetry in Florian & Michael Quistrebert’s work. The installation consists of a stack of three monitors, each showing looped short-form videos. The Quistreberts employ the formalist language of abstraction using basic geometric shapes, such as circles, squares and rectangles and referencing canonical 20th movements of modernism and responsive eye paintings and avant-garde cinema.
Based in Paris and Amsterdam, French brothers Michael (born 1976) and Florian (born 1982) Quistrebert were recently nominated for the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize and have been garnering critical acclaim for their numerous exhibitions in recent years.
Visions of Void, running from 7 February to 22 March at Dundee Contemporary Arts, is their largest exhibition in the UK to date.
Mon - Fri: 9.30am - 6.30pm
Sat: 10.00am - 1.00pm
Please note that the exhibition will be temporarily closed on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 March 2015. Thank you for your understanding.
