Gerry Fox is one of the most decorated filmmakers working in the UK today. His film portraits of artists, including Gilbert & George, Claes Oldenburg, Bill Viola, Gerhard Richter and Robert Frank, have been broadcast on television internationally and in major festivals across the world, at venues such as the Venice Biennale. It is with great pleasure that Eleven, one of Belgravia’s most respected fine art galleries, present an exhibition of work by the internationally renowned artist.
Nudes Moving is a technologists dream. Filmed in the most pristine high definition, these pieces take as their point of departure works by artists including Egon Schiele and Auguste Rodin. Recreating these works with contemporary models, these moving images take on a life of their own; the viewer comes to realise that they are watching mesmerisingly slow-moving portraits.
Some of these works have been digitally manipulated to echo the soft and deliberate brush strokes of the original pieces. Clothing conceals and reveals in equal measure, narratives unfold and our subjects become knowingly exposed. The result is delightfully sensuous, and an exhibition of work that you are unlikely to have seen previously, or likely to see soon again.
