2008 - Hilary Lloyd

Hilary Lloyd has gained significant recognition for short films featuring urban young people engaged in mundane everyday activity. Summer, 2008 saw the presentation of her influential 'video sculpture', Colin #2, 1999. The work features two monitors back-to-back: one shows a young man taking his vest off with a balletic, concentrated slowness; the other documents the same process in reverse. Shot in real time using a static camera, the film captures the intense concentration of both the protagonist and the artist, while touching on issues of voyeurism, fetishism and the value of time.
