candice breitz: treatement

Candice Breitz’s earliest video installation, Babel Series, was shown at the Centre in 2000, with the support and encouragement of Paolo Colombo. On the occasion of the Centre’s 40th anniversary, Breitz returns to talk about and screen excerpts from recent works, tracing her journey from the Babel Series (1999) to a recent dual-channel installation titled Treatment (2013), which will be exhibited at the Project Space parallel to her presentation. Treatment enlists Breitz’s own parents psychotherapist to recreate selected scenes from David Cronenberg’s film The Brood (1979), extending her exploration of the intertwinement of psychological and social being with popular culture, and reflecting particular on the quasi-parental force exerted by cinematic images.
