Movie Info

British artist Tacita Dean's JG, like much of Mary Frank's work, has a profound relationship with the natural world. But she is the "cool" to Mary's "hot." Her 35mm anamorphic film sometimes divides the screen into three parts, using a fixed camera and masking to create stunning, surreal juxtapositions of earth, salt, clay, mountains, an armadillo awakening, and much else that surprises and delights. JG is an homage to both the writings of J.G. Ballard and the Spiral Jetty earthwork of sculptor Robert Smithson. Spoken text in JG is taken from J.G. Ballard's The Voices of Time (1960), Prisoner of the Coral Deep (1964), Robert Smithson as Cargo Cultist (2000) and his correspondence with Dean, courtesy of the J.G. Ballard Estate, and from Robert Smithson's The Spiral Jetty (1972) c. Estate of Robert Smithson/Vaga, NY. Used by permission. (C) Anthology
