Doug Aitken
November 22, 2004 – May 7, 2005 | Goetz Collection BASE103

Doug Aitken's video installations and photographs are located between documentation and fiction. Sammlung Goetz presents a selection of art by the American artist in its BASE103 media area. These works reflect the tense relationship between nature and civilization.

The 1995 eruption of the Soufrière Hills volcano on the Caribbean island of Monserrat is the starting point of the video installation Eraser, 1998. Taking a fictitious walk, the seven-part artwork shows how nature reclaims a piece of land that humans have left. I am in you (linear version), 2000, provides insights into the emotional world of a very young girl. The combination of image and sound in this one-channel video projection gradually causes the interior and exterior perspectives to diverge.
Doug Aitken's photographs form an independent work complex in his oeuvre. Similarly to his video installations, they poetically focus on the relationship between time and space. In the lounge area of BASE103, Sammlung Goetz presents the photographs The movement, 2000 and the monumental tryptich Two second separation II, 1999.
Doug Aitken became internationally known through his prizewinning video installation Electric Earth, 1999, which was shown at the Venice Biennale.

Doug Aitken (born in 1968 in Redondo Beach, US, lives and works in Los Angeles, US).
