VICTOR BURGIN That
Jeu de Paume, Paris, France
10 Oct 2023 - 28 Jan 2024
Born in 1941 in the UK, Victor Burgin is an artist and theorist. This exhibition of his work covers over fifty years of artistic activity and includes early conceptual works, still photo-text works from the 1970s and 1980s, and video works dating from 2006 to 2023.
In formal terms, Burgin’s works explore relations between still and moving images and words, most often in their narrative functions. Although his works are rooted in everyday reality, Burgin’s main and most constant concern is with the psychological space where perceptions of the physical world merge with memory and fantasy.
