Item description for Gary Hill: Works, Writings by Gary Hill...
Of his earliest artistic experiments, Gary Hill has said, "More than traditional sculpture I was involved in material process 'How far can I take this material?'" When he found video, he was mesmerized: "I started to play with cameras, tape recorders, sound I was completely seduced by technological possibilities, they changed my head inside out in a way." Hill has been making video art since before the world agreed that it was art at all, working with moving image, sound and mixed media since the early 1970s. His curiosity and tenacity, along with the exceptional quality of his work, have led to honors including the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale and a MacArthur "genius" grant. His work has been exhibited throughout the world, at Documenta IX, in a string of Whitney Biennials, and in solo exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, among others. This, the most complete monograph currently available, created with the personal collaboration of the artist, was originally conceived as an alphabet-book of his concepts. It now reproduces more than 100 works, some with their spoken text, personal writings and an update on "Loop Through," the 2005 work performed by Isabelle Huppert.
