Victor Burgin: five pieces for projection
Victor Burgin s Five Pieces for Projection introduces recent projection work from 2010 to 2014, and coincides with the artist and writer s retrospective exhibition Forms of Telling at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen. Each of the five projections presented in the catalogue is accompanied by a text by Burgin that discusses how the work emerges from a personal experience, a preoccupation with a building, a place, or a Romantic painting.

Like a visual diary, a fictional narrative, or historical document, Burgin s projection work takes us on a journey to different places and situations. This publication too reads like a film or a moving storyline where real and imaginary images are activated and intertwined through the use of photographs, paintings, and brief textual recollections. Hanne Loreck s detailed essay discusses some of Burgin s digital image projections, such as Dovedale (2010) and Mirror Lake (2013), considering the visual-textual effect of Burgin s work and the atmospheres created that trigger numerous associations in the viewer of a book, a film, or a personal memory.

Abstract

Victor Burgin s Five Pieces for Projection introduces recent projection work from 2010 to 2014, and coincides with the artist and writer s retrospective exhibition Forms of Telling at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen. Each of the five projections presented in the catalogue is accompanied by a text by Burgin that discusses how the work emerges from a personal experience, a preoccupation with a building, a place, or a Romantic painting.

Like a visual diary, a fictional narrative, or historical document, Burgin s projection work takes us on a journey to different places and situations. This publication too reads like a film or a moving storyline where real and imaginary images are activated and intertwined through the use of photographs, paintings, and brief textual recollections. Hanne Loreck s detailed essay discusses some of Burgin s digital image projections, such as Dovedale (2010) and Mirror Lake (2013), considering the visual-textual effect of Burgin s work and the atmospheres created that trigger numerous associations in the viewer of a book, a film, or a personal memory.
