Chloe Wise Screening of 'Told A Vision'

On the occasion of Paris+ par Art Basel, Almine Rech is pleased to invite you to Chloe Wise's screening of Told A Vision on view on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at Silencio des Prés, Paris.

Artist Chloe Wise’s latest work Told A Vision, a multimedia installation created for Parcours, Art Basel, replicates the sensation of channel surfing at the mercy of some unknown remote control holder. Fragments of commercials, despite their uncanny familiarity and authoritative language, advertise nothing in particular. These scenes evoke empty promises, tautologically promoting the idea of consumerism itself. As the film progresses, the messages become distorted, and language devolves into meaninglessness, approximating the incoherence of overheard snippets of conversation in a crowd.
