An uncompromised vision (FW34)

Victor Burgin: Watergate

Victor Burgin: Watergate
As I entered Victor Burgins single screen video installation Watergate, the camera was slowly panning around an over-furnished hotel room: sofa, bed, window, mirror, tv. The film got darker as the camera halted on the dormant television. Slowly the washington skyline, reflected in the screen, faded away, and only blackness remained; a thick, velvet blackness that smothered you entirely.
