2009, Dan Green
4’25’’, Loop, SD video, ed. 1
Shot over Christmas 2008 on several walks whilst the artist was at home, through landscape familiar from childhood.
‘Chaser’ is a video-diary recorded whilst the artist was on Christmas vacation in the village he grew up in. Each day he took a walk through these familiar surroundings hoping for a glimpse of the sun setting. Seemingly devoted to this celestial being who through its own glory describes three entities which are of the utmost importance to the artist yet all potentially destructive or costly to his person and being. He describes his relationship with all three in the same terms as he chases the Sun, God and unrequited love.
