The Berlin-based Scottish artist is an outstanding personality. Douglas Gordon is a 'film player' who uses cinema and video as a medium, always installing it with a 'sculptural' outlook. As well as films and complex largescale video installations, his art also encompasses photographs, texts and objects. He draws inspiration from cinema, literature, art, popular culture and his own history, wavering between personal and collective memory. He explores the existential themes of life and death, good and evil, innocence and guilt, temptation and fear. This survey exhibition proves to be a portrait of the artist’s obsessions, providing an overview of Gordon's work from the past 20 years.
