‘Jordan Baseman’ @ Matt’s Gallery

24 May 2013

Video artist Jordan Baseman‘s ‘Deadness’ launches at Matt’s Gallery, London, with a private view on Sunday, May 26 and runs from Wednesday, May 29 to Friday, July¬†21.

With an interview-based practice centred around creative non-fiction Baseman’s homonymous experimental film explores the historical, cultural and sociological relationship between photographic portraiture and embalming, by providing insight into contemporary practices and their significance in providing peace to the bereaved. Exhibited alongside will be a collection of images from the wildfires in Tasmania, Australia, earlier this year with February 09 2013 , while artist Stuart Brisley appears in The Last Walk, experimenting with the materiality of film and transience of life. See the Matt’s Gallery website for more info. **

But this is a feeling that is repeatedly dispelled both in the layout of the show and in the accompanying exhibition guide.
