Owls At Noon Prelude: The Hollow Men Owls At Noon Prelude: The Hollow Men
Brisbane’s IMA is showing film-essayist and media artist par excellence Chris Marker’s Owls At Noon Prelude: The Hollow Men until May 26, a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in this eight-screen video installation commissioned by New York’s Museum of Modern Art for its 2004 re-opening. The 19-minute video loop of images (black and white footage and stills), text (TS Eliot’s and Marker’s own words and digital musings) and music (Takemitsu’s Corona, for piano) figures World War I as prophetic prelude to a century of wars. On April 14 and 24, respectively, Frances Bonner and Adrian Martin will speak about Marker’s work.

IMA, Chris Marker, Bill Henson, Gavin Hipkins; Brisbane, April 10-May 26;
