Isaac Julien: Ten Thousand Waves-video

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013


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.

Official description:
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.
