Present Continuous

Present Continuous
Present Continuous
Present Continuous, a retrospective exhibition of videos by Omer Fast, opened on 18th March at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, UK. It will close on 26th June. The exhibition includes several videos, all playing in different rooms connected by dark corridors. The exhibition catalogue, edited by Laurence Sillars, includes transcripts of each video.

Everything That Rises Must Converge (2013) is a four-screen video following a day in the lives of four porn stars. (The content is explicit, so the exhibition is restricted to adults only.) The effect is similar to Timecode (2000) by Mike Figgis, and the title is taken from a collection of short stories by Flannery O'Conner.
