Like a slicker, feelgood version of Banksy, mysterious French street artist JR returns to the Watari-Um to show off his latest video work. After using entire neighbourhoods – from Brazilian favelas to the Israeli West Bank barrier – as a canvas for his photographs, he's explored the moving image format in more depth recently, and now displays three video pieces created during 2014 and 2015. Ellis brings life back into the ruins of hospitals on the famed New York island that saw tens of millions of immigrants pass through between 1892 and 1954, while Les Bosquets documents how a NYC ballet troupe expressed the 2005 French suburb riots through the medium of dance. Finally, Rivages looks at the exclusively male working environment in a French container port.
