Isaac Julien ‘s Ten Thousand Waves art instillation is held at New York City’s Museum of Contemporary Art. If the floating woman looks familiar, it’s actress Maggie Cheung (In A Mode For Love, 2046, Hero, etc.). The show runs through February 17, 2014.
Ten Thousand Waves (2010) is an immersive film installation projected onto nine double-sided screens arranged in a dynamic structure. Especially conceived for The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, the installation choreographs visitors’ movement through the space. The original inspiration for this recently acquired, 55-minute moving image installation was the Morecambe Bay tragedy of 2004, in which more than 20 Chinese cockle pickers drowned on a flooded sandbank off the coast in northwest England.
