Mark Wallinger: Italian Lessons, a short film of I Am Innocent, 2010, installed at Victoria Miro Venice

An exhibition by Mark Wallinger, presented by Victoria Miro in collaboration with Hauser & Wirth. Selected by the artist especially for Victoria Miro Venice, the works on display date from 1991 to 2016 and reflect a career-long engagement with ideas of power, authority, artifice and illusion. Many of the works on show make use of photography or simulacra in order to test the extent to which the potency of an image or object transcends reproduction. In his celebrated work, I am Innocent, 2010, Wallinger makes a life-size, double-sided reproduction of Velazquez's Pope Innocent X (in the Palazzo Pamphilj, Rome), one side as Velázquez painted it, the other reversed, and, suspending it from the ceiling, sets it in motion so that it spins continuously, to beguiling optical effect.

A walk through of Do Ho Suh’s installation Passage/s

Created from stitched planes of translucent, coloured polyester fabric Suh's Hubs – delicately precise, weightless impressions of corridor-like points of intersection between rooms – seem to exist between imagination and reality, past and present. To move through them is to experience a distinct emotional register, a sense of being in flux, crossing boundaries and moving between psychological states. Filmed on the occasion of Do Ho Suh: Passage/s at Victoria Miro, February – March 2017. © Do Ho Suh, courtesy Marjoleine Boonstra and Reinier van Brummelen.
