About this title

Synopsis:

In Hole in the Wall, his first video installation, created in 1974, we watch on a monitor screen inserted at eye level into a wall as Gary Hill removes, layer for layer, a rectangular section of that same wall in order to create the very hole in which the monitor is about to be positioned. The placement of the monitor in the hole in turn triggers feedback between the camera and the video monitor, which then restarts the loop, thus showing how the medium of video moves into a surface previously reserved for exhibiting paintings and drawings. Gary Hill: Selected Works and Catalogue Raisonné places this initial piece in the context of work dating from 1972 to 2001, including 20 performances, 50 mono-channel videos, 60 video installations, and a number of destroyed works, and demonstrates that, though video is truly the most appropriate medium for Hill's artistic project, it is never confused with the content of the work, with his interest in perception, image creation, and the relationship between body and speech.

Essays by Chrissie Iles, Gottfried Boehm and Heinz Liesbrock. Foreword by Gijs van Tuyl.

Clothbound, 360 pages, 130 color and 190 b&w

About the Author:

Born in 1951 in Santa Monica, California, Gary Hill is one of the pioneers of video art. He completed his first single channel video work in 1973 and began producing video installations as early as 1974, long before the medium had been recognized as a vehicle for art. Among his many awards are a Kurt Schwitters Award, a MacArthur Foundation Grant, two Guggenheim Fellowships, and the Lion d'Or for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. His work has been shown around the world, including solo exhibitions at The Watari Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Sprengel Museum, Hannover; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Musée de l'art contemporain de Montréal. Hill lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
