Gary Hill: Remarks on Color
August 11 – December 13, 2003 | Sammlung Goetz Filmbox

American artist Gary Hill investigates the perception of and connections between image, sound and language. In Remarks on Color, 1994, a one-channel video production, a text by Ludwig Wittgenstein is the object of his work.

The complex language of philosophical texts presents many a reader with great difficulties. What is it like, however, for a child to read such a work? Gary Hill examines this question in his one-channel video installation Remarks on Color, 1994. We see a girl of about ten read aloud from Ludwig Wittgenstein's 1951 treatise 'Bemerkungen über Farbe'. Despite great effort, the girl's reading is so halting that it is even difficult for an adult listener to understand the content. Thus, the viewer's attention soon shifts to the projected image. In the German version, the girl stands in front of a black background wearing a green sweater. She is holding the red, bilingual edition of the work. Sammlung Goetz shows Gary Hill's work in the Filmbox in the gallery basement.

Gary Hill (born in1951 in Santa Monica, US, lives and works in Seattle, US).
