The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection. | Gary Hill
Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, US

The Henry celebrates its ninetieth anniversary with the first museum-wide exhibition of the contemporary collection, featuring over fifty artworks by an international roster of artists, in media ranging from video installation to photography and from sculpture to drawing.

Gary Hill's multi-monitor work Placing Sense Sens Placé (1995) displays synchronized footage the artist created by carrying a camera through a house and intermittently setting it down. Through this vantage point, space is fractured and fragmented and resists cohesion. Visitors can move the monitors on their dollies throughout the gallery, such that the monitors continually reorganize the physical space and how the body navigates it, highlighting the embodied condition of perception.
