Candice Breitz: The Woods

June 3 -September 13, 2014

The Woods is a trilogy of video installations filmed across three continents and exploring the rituals and conventions governing the on-camera and off-camera personae of professional child actors, as well as adult actors who have become famous playing child roles. The trilogy brings together footage shot in Los Angeles, Mumbai and Lagos, seeking to observe and grasp the aspirational logic that is shared by Hollywood, Bollywood and Nollywood. The Woods co-commissioned by ACMI (Melbourne, Australia) and the Peabody Essex Museum (Salem, Massachusetts). The exhibition is organized by Trevor Smith and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
