"Hill's installations liberate video art from the confines of the screening room; his video projections and multimonitor, digitally edited imagery can awaken even the most dazed TV channel-surfers. Tall Ships was the one undisputed hit of Documenta IX and the 1993 Whitney Biennial, and remains one of the most compelling works of the last decade."

"Hill's use of video projections introduces figurative and narrative concerns to the more sculpturally static work of video pioneers like Nam June Paik or Shigeko Kubota. Indeed, his use of cutting-edge technology seems to open up incredible possibilities for video installation. Hill continually seeks to trick the senses into perceptions beyond their comprehension. The final shot of Site Recite (a prologue) is taken from a tiny camera within a mouth, looking out as it forms the words, "Imagining the brain closer than the eyes." This desire to transcend the senses with a pure, Platonic inteflectualism is present throughout Hill's videotapes and installations; yet he never forgets that the intellect, too, is grounded in the physical body. It is this age-old riddle -the paradoxical relation of mind and body- that underlies Hill's work and guarantees its appeal." -from Art In America, June, 1995

"Old-school critics feel uncomfortable with video; it's not within their territory. And art dealers and galleries offer them little incentive to do their homework. The bottom line is that video art is not a saleable commodity (if it is a commodity). You can't buy tapes and hang them on the wall."

"Suddenly last summer, everything changed. The Documenta exhibition in Germany set a Chinese whisper lose among curators and critics. The mutterings declared that video had finally come of age. As if to prove the point, two major British galleries -MOMA, Oxford, and the Whitechapel in London- are staging exhibitions by two of the video world's grand masters: Gary Hill and Bill Viola respectively. In a recent interview, Gary Hill remarked on the current flurry of interest by suggesting that perhaps it was the art world that had finally come of age." -from New Statesman & Society, Dec., 1993


Gary Hill

b 1951 Santa Monica, CA (USA); 1973 first video experiments; in the 1980s starts a video program at the Cornish College of the Arts; since 1985 lives in Seattle (USA).

Gary Hill is one of the most important contemporary artists investigating the relationships between words, sounds and electronic images. The video image with its essential component sound is explored using different approaches of discourse analysis and models of language as a semantic and semiotic system. The exact conceptual frame of his works leads to precise formal image and sound structures as well as to a complex circuit of mutual re-definitions: immaterial, futile systems of displacement, fusion, detachments of constituents of meaning. His inquiries into linguistics and consciousness offer resonant philosophical and poetic insights, as he explores the formal conjunctions of electronic visual and audio elements with the body and the self.
