Ari Marcopoulos - Upstream
|Status||not yet published|
This artist’s book and catalogue accompanies Ari Marcopoulos’s exhibition at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. The 2021 video installation ‘Alone Together’, featuring a saxophone performance by jazz legend Joe McPhee, forms a central part of the exhibition. The tension between its immediacy and the subliminal cultural and historical references lend the video portrait an uncanny intensity. The images framing the video attest to the artist’s own productivity and reflect the indispensable role of the photographic medium as witness to contemporary culture. With texts by Hamza Walker and Giovanni Carmine.
