Doug Aitken's "Black Mirror" in Greece


"Commissioned by the Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art in Athens for its project space on the island of Hydra, the installation, immerses visitors in an environment lined with black mirrors that endlessly reflect various iterations of Mr. Aitken’s chilly new video.

“Black Mirror” presents its star, the actress and clothing designer ChloĆ« Sevigny, as a nameless drifter navigating a barren landscape punctuated by satellite dishes, radio towers and droning airplanes. Stopping periodically in one anonymous hotel room or another, she makes attempts to connect, by phone or text or e-mail, to an unidentified second party, with little success."
