Double Cross: The Hollywood Films of Douglas Gordon

 


Double Cross
, Douglas Gordon's solo exhibition in Fall 2000, examines the artist's intervention into Hollywood film, focusing on works by Gordon whose source films developed within the Hollywood tradition of film noir. Although Gordon works within extant bodies of film, he acts as an author mirroring his own themes in those of his host films. His fictional world is carefully structured with its formal interventions focussing attention on the themes of madness and the double, the chiasm of fate, and the binding of trust and guilt. Beyond good and evil, Gordon's work is all about dissemblance. This book, co-published with the Art Gallery of York University includes an essay by Philip Monk.

This publication is a proud recipient of the 2004 OAAG Awards in the Curatorial Writing category.
