Item description for Antille: Angels/1st Songs: Four Short Stories Based on the Angels Camp Screenplay by Emmanuelle Antille...
In the Swiss pavilion at the 2003 Venice Biennale, Emmanuelle Antille's elaborate video installation Angels Camp told the story of a natural disaster. "Nearly a year ago," the screenplay's narrator explains, "Hurricane Hazel hit the area. It only lasted part of the night. But nothing has ever been the same again. It destroyed houses, felled trees. Dogs and kids died. A thin layer of urine and peat was left over roads and fields, gluing our clothes together and sneaking into our beds. Afterwards, people started to see and feel weird things." Two volumes will be published on the occasion of this work. The first, Angels Camp/First Songs, presents an outline of the video through still photographs of the video's characters and four short stories. The second is an artist's book.
