''Renee Green: Between and Including"

Secession
Friedrichstraße 12
February 10–April 4, 1999

Obsessed with the malleability of cultural memory, Renée Green seeks to document and retrieve (through videos and photographs) the partially buried ruins of the recent past: from countercultural events of the ’60s and ’70s to demolished site-specific installations (e.g., projects by Robert Smithson and Marcel Broodthaers). Green’s newest video, Some Chance Operations, which premieres here, recoups the images of the nearly forgotten Italian filmmaker Elvira Notari (the video will be presented in a specially constructed maze). Vienna Secession curator Kathrin Rohmberg has assembled three installations from 1996–99, shown together for the first time. A CD-ROM and a catalogue including selections by Lynne Tillman and Cookie Mueller accompanies the show.
