Sarah Morris Midtown, 1998
March 25 – April 5, 2002 | Sammlung Goetz Filmbox

Every city has its own rhythm, its own urban structure and its special atmosphere. Artist Sarah Morris succeeds in capturing the exceptional features of major metropolises in her monumental films.

Sarah Morris's artistic career began during the mid-1990s with geometric images. These deal with the organization of space and the significance of surfaces. Even if Morris's paintings exert a great aesthetic stimulus, they go far beyond a simple design of the surface. Instead, they point to the complex system of the highly industrialized consumer world. Since 1998, Morris has created cinematic portraits of metropolises that reveal the connections between power and economy in urban spaces.
Midtown, 1998, is the first film in her series of city portraits. Morris filmed it on one day in midtown Manhattan, the financial quarter of New York City, and condensed it into a barely ten-minute long video film. The camera observes New York's urban canyons, climbs the facades of high-rise buildings and dwells on the ubiquitous neon signs. The powerful images are accompanied by a suggestive, endlessly looped soundtrack composed by Morris's partner Liam Gillick.
