Left Hand Should Know, The

by Beban, Breda, Horvatic, Hrvoje

Video 1992

Arts Council of England/Great Britain

'This is the first tape that Beban and Horvatic have produced since they left their native Yugoslavia in 1991. Like Bill Viola, they are drawn to elemental themes: the power of memory; the passage of time; the flow of nature and its effect on the inner world of our thoughts. Like a slow, effortlessly sustained tone poem, the piece conjures a deeply resonant visual landscape from a series of almost archetypal everyday things. What is remarkable is that Beban and Horvatic capture this dream-like mood with barely any recourse to video trickery, relying solely on natural light and subtle optical effects. A shimmeringly beautiful work of haunting, delicate power.' - Steven Bode
