(GORDON, DOUGLAS). GORDON, DOUGLAS, HAL HARTLEY & AMY TAUBIN - DOUGLAS GORDON: THROUGH A LOOKING GLASS

Title: DOUGLAS GORDON: THROUGH A LOOKING GLASS
Description: New York, Gagosian Gallery., 1999, First Edition. (ISBN: 1-880154-27-7) Folded Poster, 4to, One 48 x 70" sheet printed offset recto and verso, neatly folded in eighths to make 12 x 8 ", 1 color illustration. This is the massive poster cum exhibition catalogue issued in conjunction with the 1999 Gagosian Gallery New York installation of Turner Prize-winning Scottish video artist Douglas Gordon's "Through a Looking Glass" - "two large-scale video projections which quote one of Hollywood's most memorable scenes. Using a monologue from Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver", Gordon traps the viewer between two images of Travis Bickle, one 'real' and the other a 'reflection of the real'. The projections appear at first to be mirror images of one another but they quickly trip out of sync and into a manic dialogue which bounces around the gallery, both visually and audibly". It includes the six page screenplay "Adventure" by filmmaker Hal Hartley - comprised of e-mail correspondence between him and Douglas Gordon, an essay by film critic Amy Taubin, and a diptych of images of Robert De Niro from "Taxi Driver". A most handsome example of this innovative object that was the only printed documentation of the exhibition showing some light edge wear as is typical.. Near Fine.
