At his first institutional exhibition in Portugal, the british artist Graham Gussin (London, 1960) presents a selection of works created from 1997 to 2008.
In this context there will be presented Film poster, a new work produced specifically to Vila do Conde.
Starting from appropriation and manipulation of images and literary narratives, of art history and of cinema, Graham Gussin creates through a rigorous conceptual program delocalizations to territories of a visual and perceptive strangeness.
His practice based on severeal media including the text, the film, the video, the sound and the installation frequently querys the concept of sublime through a continuous transit between the apparently close (the image transparentness) and the effectivelly distant (narrative texts decoding).
