‘The Sub­tle Knife’ by Daniel Crooks is screened at Times Square, New York, as a part of the Asia Soci­ety Tri­en­ni­al

January 27, 2021

A multichannel video work The Sub­tle Knife by Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Daniel Crooks is showing across multiple screens in Times Square, New York, throughout January as a part of the Asia Soci­ety Tri­en­ni­al ​We Do Not Dream Alone’ program realised in partnership with Times Square Arts. The Sub­tle Knife takes us on a con­tem­pla­tive jour­ney through time and space. Mov­ing slow­ly down a nev­er-end­ing train track, the scenery dis­ap­pears into a series of con­stant­ly reced­ing frames, form­ing a sur­re­al land­scape of alter­nate realms and infi­nite­ly expand­ing possibilities.

For a short interview with the artist visit the Asia Soci­ety Tri­en­ni­al website. Images of the work in situ are also available online.

MeMO: Grant Stevens, ‘Fawn in the Forest’

Reviewing Grant Stevens’ Fawn In The Forest Phillip Brophy writes: I’m writing this while Fawn In The Forest “plays” on my second screen. Or is it “happening”? Maybe it’s “running”. It just keeps going, as if its status as image is somehow in motion, fluid,...
