Description

An analyses of Douglas Gordon’s video projection installations based on appropriations of Hollywood film noir or Hitchcock films. Double-Cross argues that his work is all about dissemblance, with the dichotomy only one deception among others. It also argues that, with the inaugural separation of the components of sound and image in his work, one of the artist’s disguises is that of an author. All the fragments of the artist’s work—projections, language works, photography—add up to the production of a criminal author. His final disguise is that of an experimental filmmaker whose subject is not the film noir themes of trust, guilt, fate, and the madness of the double that appear as the content of his work, but the temporality of the spectator’s engagement.
