Slow Angle Walk (Beckett Walk) (1968) 1968, 60 min, b&w, sound

A fixed camera turned on its side records Nauman repeating for nearly an hour a laborious sequence of body movements inspired by passages in works by that describe similarly repetitive and meaningless activities. Hands clasped behind his back, he kicks one leg up at a right angle to his body, pivots forty-five degrees, falls forward hard with a thumping noise, extends the rear leg again at a right angle behind, and begins the sequence again. As in many of his fixed-camera film and video works, parts of Nauman's body disappear from the frame as he moves close to the camera; occasionally, he walks off-screen completely while the sound of his footsteps continues on the sound tracks. -- EAI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JE5u3ThYyl4

John Baldessari John Baldessari has been termed "one of the most influential artists to emerge since the mid-1960s." From his phototext canvases to his composite photo collages and installations, Baldessari's works have contributed to the definition of . In the early 1970s, he produced droll conceptual video works that are ironic investigations into perception, meaning and interpretation, rendered with deadpan, often absurdist humor.

http://www.ubu.com/film/tw.html The short video projection 2 into 1 (1997) features a mother and her two sons, one generation lip-synching the dubbed words of the other. It is hypnotically disturbing to watch a pair of 10-year-old twins take turns speaking their mother's exasperated love for them. "I think Lawrence is absolutely adorable, he's gorgeous, I love every inch of him," Lawrence says, in a slightly raspy woman's voice. "But he's got a terrible temper." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36WUgFMDY-M http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gillian_Wearing Gillian Wearing Dancing in Peckham http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/video/2012/mar/26/gillian-wearing-dancing-peckham-video Gillian Wearing

Self Portrait at Three Years Old. Wearing’s work captures the complexity of human relationships, and draws inspiration from reality television and confession-style programs, where every-day people reveal their most intimate thoughts and experiences. Some works focus on individuals whose emotional and psychological behaviour has been stretched to the limit, others show people at their most mundane, sharing minor hopes and fears as if admitting secrets to a friend. Gillian Wearing is a British artist and winner.

Much of Gordon's work is seen as being about memory and uses repetition in various forms. He uses material from the public realm and also creates performance-based videos. His work often overturns traditional uses of video by playing with time elements and employing multiple monitors.[3] Play Dead; Real Time Elephant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-XD6fuf0ho One of his best-known art works is 24 Hour (1993) which slows down 's film Psycho so that it lasts twenty four hours.[4]

24 Hour Psycho in his own words: The exhibition begins with 24 Hour ", as I see it, is not simply Psycho (1993), a slowed-down a work of . It is more like an version of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 act of affiliation... it wasn't a film Psycho. A different take on a straightforward case of abduction. The familiar classic, it introduces many original work is a masterpiece in its own of the important themes in Gordon's right, and I've always loved to watch work: recognition and repetition, it. ... I wanted to maintain the authorship time and memory, complicity and of Hitchcock so that when an audience duplicity, authorship and would see my 24 Hour Psycho they authenticity, darkness and light. would think much more about Hitchcock and much less, or not at all, about me... Douglas Gordon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

24 Hour Psycho is the title of an art installation created by artist Douglas Gordon in 1993. The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames a second, rather than the usual 24. As a result it lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes.[1] The film was an important work in Gordon's early career, and is said to introduce themes common to his work, such as "recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtLg5TqqVeA Similar in appearance, but quite different in its effect, is Through a Looking Glass (1999), in which two screens, placed face to face, projecting repeatedly a one-minute-or-so fragment from the film , by with Robert de Niro (yeah, the famous you talkin' to me? scene) In this one, the spectator does not interact with the work, but, placed between both screens, seems to be placed in the middle of a shooting, being the next victim of Travis Bickle's paranoia. Personally, I think that this work, apparently simple or even tricky , is, with its smart use of the space and dimensions, and the aggressive of its effect, one of the best works by Gordon. Monster Reborn 1996 / 2002

Gordon uses doubles and opposites in his work to question ideas about good and evil, positive and negative, male and female. As a Scottish artist, he often uses his own image to explore the ‘dual’ identity of Scottish culture, as exemplified in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’. This work is a double self-portrait, and is the same photograph used in the artist’s 1996 work ‘Monster’, except here the image is reversed so that the distorted face is on the left instead of the right. Gordon has used sticky tape to distort his face, making him virtually unrecognisable from the sober-looking man on the right. The viewer is thus prompted to wonder if both states can co-exist in one body, and who came first, the monster or the artist? Douglas Gordon List of Names (Random) 1990 - ongoing

This work consists of a list of names, displayed in columns, as if it were a war memorial or a roll of honour. They are the names of everyone the artist has ever met, or more precisely, everyone he can remember meeting. Gordon says of this work, 'It was an accurate and honest statement but it was full of mistakes (like forgetting the names of some friends), so there were some embarrassing elements in the work, but that all seemed to be quite close to the truth of how our head functions anyway. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.' Self-portrait as Kurt Cobain, as , as Hindley, as Marilyn Monroe 1996

In this self-portrait, Gordon merges and mimics iconic images of well-known blondes - Cobain, Warhol, Hindley and Monroe - in a single photograph. All the figures appropriated by Gordon had obviously dyed hair, and the artist contrasts their often notorious life histories with ideas of purity traditionally associated with blondeness. Gordon's pose also refers to 'Rrose Sélavy', the notorious alter ego of the Dada artist, Marcel Duchamp.
