Canadian video artist and photographer Mark Lewis (*1957) explores the visual language of the cinema and questions its conventions in his work. The London-based artist produces his films using actors and professional crews, but most of the films end abruptly after an average running time of four minutes - the length of one roll of film. The dimension of time also plays another significant role in Lewis's work: he often uses slow pans of landscapes and buildings, which develop a hypnotic suction effect upon the viewer. Algonquin Park, Early March is an example of a monochromatic, almost abstract tribute to the picturesque elements of the Canadian landscape. In contrast, Churchyard Row takes us on a journey through the architectural bleakness of a working-class neighborhood in London. Exhibition schedule: Kunstverein in Hamburg, April 16 - July 3, 2005
