Bruce Conner. Light out of Darkness
Bruce Conner (1933–2008) is as legendary for his critical attitude to the art world as he is for his role as the father of the video clip. His work in many media is political and subversive, with an immediate sensuality that goes straight under the skin. The exhibition centres on his film works, including CROSSROADS (1976) that assembles footage of the first U.S. underwater atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll in 1946 into a 36-minute study on the horror and sublimity of this apocalyptic event.
