Loop 2014: Seitenflügel

Art, Contemporary art
©Eve Sussman i Simon Lee

In the dead of winter in Berlin, Eve Sussman and Simon Lee trained their camera on the exterior of a building of apartments as day slid into night to make 'Seitenflügel', a single screen video that captures glimpses of mundane fragments and implies narratives in the daily life of their neighbours. Channelling their previous works with and obvious nod to Hitchcock’s 'Rear Window', 'Seitenflügel' takes voyeurism, ever-present in urban life, and delivers an unreal view of the lives across the courtyard, volleying it back forever changed by the act of the observer.
