with A.E. Benenson

Press Release

Exhibition trailer

December 15, 2013 – February 14, 2014

Curated by A.E. Benenson, “Where 2” recontextualizes Douglas Gordon’s super-durational appropriation work, 24 Hour Psycho(1993) within contemporary networks of live-streaming and digital media piracy. Working as an act of recursive appropriation, the exhibition will screen Hitchcock’s Psycho once daily in the gallery at 6:30 pm, streaming the footage via webcam to gallery’s website at Gordon’s prescribed speed of 2 frames per second to create a continuous, unauthorized digital version of 24 Hour Psycho. You can watch a simulation here
