Victor Burgin came to prominence in the late 1960s through his contributions to the first museum shows of conceptual art. In formal terms, his own works explore relations between still and moving images and words, most often in their narrative functions.
Although rooted in everyday reality, Victor Burgin's focus lies in the psychological space where perceptions of the physical world merge with memory and fantasy. 'That' is split across three parts: Some Themes, Some Works, and Retrospectively.
The first comprises edited excerpts from interviews and talks; the second is an overview of over 50 years of visual art production; the third is a conversation with the artist and curator Pia Viewing.
Exhibition Victor Burgin - That, presented at the Jeu de Paume, Paris (From 10 October 2023 to 28 January 2024).
