Ed Atkins dives into the nightmarish underbelly of high-definition video technology to investigate the various ways this format both facilitates and obstructs intimacy, particularly in its representation of the human figure. The London-based artist deploys digital and dramatic effects—including CGI avatars, 3D, manipulated stock footage, spoken and subtitled texts, and various techniques from commercial filmmaking—to underscore HD’s uncanny capacity to simulate the surface of reality, often at the expense of narrative, language, character, and emotion. In this spotlight program, Migrating Forms presents a selection of Atkins’ work, which has been featured at acclaimed solo exhibitions at Tate Britain and MoMA PS1.

Program includes:

Untitled (strawberry poison dart tree frog) (Ed Atkins demux) (2011), based on a piece by Simon Martin
A thousand centuries of death (2010)
A primer for cadavers (2011)
Cut to (2008)
Even Pricks (2013)
Material Witness OR A Liquid Cop (2012)
A tumour (In English) (2011)
Happy Christmas!! (2015)
