  Is this guilt in you too— (Cinema Verso)
Hosted by the Whitechapel’s East Wing
14 October – 5 November 2006
Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 6pm

The former Whitechapel Library plays host to Ryan Gander’s installation Is this the guilt in you too- (Cinema Verso), a poetic meditation on disorientation and loss. The work locates the viewer in an imaginary backspace behind a cinema screen: on the transluscent screen, a film flickers, but in reverse, while beyond it we glimpse but cannot access a ghostly, empty auditorium.

The film can only be perceived in parts, focusing on narratives that interweave and overlap in fragmented, dream like sequences. As the film unfolds, it induces a sense of physical and spatial disorientation that becomes a powerful metaphor for the nature of cinematic space, film, and sight itself.

Presented by STORE with the generous support of Outset and Arts Council England.
