Johan Grimonprez: Looking for Alfred
Touring exhibition from Film and Video Umbrella
Mon 14 Feb – Tue 8 Mar 2005
This large-scale, commissioned video installation explores the filmic legacy of Alfred Hitchcock, focusing on his regular cameo appearances in each of his films. Re-enacting them with the aid of Hitchcock look-alikes, John Grimonprez weaves an unexpected narrative from Hitchcock’s fifty-year trail of walk-on parts.
