In Aitken's video, pulses of electricity merge with the human heartbeat and move through a landscape that is expansive and anonymous. Filmed against the backdrop of an unrecognisably empty Los Angeles during periods of lockdown in 2020, unseen members of the Los Angeles Dance Project move, ghost-like underneath Aitken's textile works.
This presentation coincides with Doug Aitken: Microcosmos, an exhibition of new fabric wall hangings and floor-based works, on view at Victoria Miro Venice until 30 October 2021.
