Chris Marker @ Whitechapel Gallery, Apr 18-Jun 22

8 April 2014

From April 18 to June 22, London’s Whitechapel Gallery will present the first ever UK retrospective of prolific French filmmaker, writer, photographer and multimedia master Chris Marker.

For the duration of the 2+ months, the Whitechapel Gallery will brim with Marker’s extraordinary films and photographs, showing extracts from some of his iconic films – including Sans soleil (1983), Le Fond de l’air est rouge (1977), and La Jetée (1962) – as well as all five of his installation pieces shown side by side for the first time. In addition, the retrospective will introduce newly re-mastered editions of some of Marker’s famous essay films, such as that of Le Joli Mai (1963), as well as a large projection of Ouvroir: the Movie (2010), his guided virtual museum tour.
