Projections: Works from the Artangel Collection, Whitworth Art Gallery Manchester, until 4th September 2011

Featuring ground-breaking film and video installations from two decades of Artangel commissions, Projections at the Whitworth Art Gallery includes High Wire, British artist Catherine Yass‘s multi-screen installation of a vertiginous walk in the sky. It also features The Nightwatch by Francis Alys, which tracks the nocturnal wanderings of a fox through a museum at night, and Atom Egoyan’s Steenbeckett, based on the moving monologue from Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape. Outside, a spectral son-et-lumiere called The Influence Machine has been created by Tony Oursler. Videos of talking heads, projected onto trees and smoke, haunt Whitworth Park after dark. Projections is produced by Artangel, Whitworth Art Gallery & is part of the Manchester International Festival.
