Omer Fast: 2001/11
Omer Fast: 2001/11 |
This exhibition brings together two video works made a decade apart by artist Omer Fast that throw into relief subjects that have helped define a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Fast began CNN Concatenated in 2001 in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. 5000 Feet Is the Best was completed in 2011 for its unveiling to great acclaim at the Venice Biennale. Each of these works focuses clearly on a single subject—media saturation in the case of CNN Concatenated and drone warfare in the case of 5000 Feet Is the Best—while also investigating the shifting interactions of reality and representation. Both also raise questions about storytelling, authenticity, and authorship, as well as about the ways that lived experiences become part of history.
