Knots

They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game.

A Restoration

One of the most intoxicating artworks I've seen this year is Elizabeth Price's A Restoration, at the Ashmolean Museum in Cambridge.

"I use digital video to try and explore the divergent forces that are at play when you bring so many different technological histories together... I’m interested in the medium of video as something you experience sensually as well as something you might recognise."

EP's 2008 At the house of Mr X is fantastic too. It's various sensual elements are expertly spliced to set hearts racing and leave you haunted.
