At 59 Production’s behest, I created some of the audiovisual content for the original exhibition back in 2012, notably the three videos in the exhibition’s final room, for ‘Jean Genie’, ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide’ and ‘Sweet Thing’. The exhibition has since toured to the AGO in Toronto, MIS in Sao Paolo, the Martin Gropius Bau Berlin, the MCA Chicago, the Philharmonie de Paris, and the ACMI Melbourne. The exhibition in Groningen runs through the April 2016, then on to Bologna, Barcelona and New York.
At each venue, the final room is redesigned, as are the videos. The video above is a mock-up of the four giant screens in the space, to give a sense of the immersive nature of the experience.
