Ed Atkins

Counting #1 & #2


HD video (13:19 min)

The animated severed heads keep bouncing down the stairs over and over again. Counting 1 and 2 are synchronized with the video piece Ribbons in the adjacent rooms, acting – according to the artist – like a “metronome” or aesthetic primer for the main work in the other rooms. Ed Atkins regards the loop as a signature mode of contemporary presentation.  

Another work by Atkins is also featured in the show: Ribbons
