The most extensive solo survey to date of the British twins Jane and Louise Wilson. It includes their first film work, Hypnotic Suggestion 505 (1993), and several unreleased works such as a series of sculptures that play with CAMís architecture and the video Songs for My Mother (2009).
The show takes us, both psychologically and historically, into a universe suspended between epochs, narratives and architectures, namely with the works Unfolding the Aryan Papers (2009) which combine stills from Stanley Kubrickís meticulous collection with footage of Hornsey Town Hall; and photographic series Oddiments (2008); and the large scale photos of the broken and decayed World War II bunkers in the Normandy coastline.
