An ode to the night in video art
Surrounded by gyrating bodies in a dimly lit club, dancing until the sun comes up. Anyone who’s ever been there knows what it’s like to lose yourself in the music and merge with the crowd.
In the night we can express ourselves in ways we can’t during the day. The night is a haven for experiment and creativity, for freedom and solidarity worldwide. And a huge source of inspiration for video artists.
Amazing videos by celebrated artists such as The Krazyhouse by Rineke Dijkstra, Wildness by Wu Tsang and Critical Mass : Pure Immanence by Anne de Vries provide a sense of the Rhythm of the Night. In The Krazyhouse, Rineke Dijkstra portrays young clubbers on a Liverpool dancefloor: ‘The result is a beguiling and yet familiar reflection of the social and cultural codes with which young people shape their identity,’ curator Manique Hendricks explains.
Experience The Rhythm of the Night and feel the beat like you’re on the dancefloor.
