Installations by artist duo Janet Cardiff (*1957) and George Bures Miller (*1960) entice us into worlds that extend beyond our experience of reality. The two Canadian artists became famous for works such as The Secret Hotel, in which it was possible to experience the rooms of a grand old hotel, and The Paradise Institute , a hit with visitors at the 2001 Venice Biennale, which conjured up a turn-of-the-century movie theater—although the starring role was played by a second soundtrack consisting of noises that usually disturb theater patrons: whispers, coughs, and rustling bags of popcorn. A concise retrospective, this publication joins existing works with those created esspecially for this exhibition; at the same time, it is a comprehensive reader containing previously unpublished written and visual material, as well as literature which follows similar themes as the oeuvre of Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller.

About the artists

The artists Janet Cardiff (*1957 in Brussels, Canada) and George Bures Miller (*1960 in Vegreville, Canada) have been working together since the mid-1990s, creating illusionary spaces in which the acoustic perception of sound, as well as its sculptural and physical qualities, play a role. More about the artists in the Hatje Cantz art dictionary »
