premieres a new series of single channel works, which further investigate the artists’ interest in the convergence of time, trains and cinema. Concerned with multiple worlds and parallel realties, these new videos can be seen as an expansion of Crooks’ recent project Phantom Ride completed earlier this year as the recipient of the second Ian Potter Moving Image Commission.
Crooks' complex and beautiful time structures reveal a poetic sensibility that belies the technical sophistication of their production. Treating time as a physical, malleable material his works stretch and distort reality while questioning our perception of it.
Practising across a range of media including video, photography, sculpture and installation, Daniel Crooks’ work has been widely exhibited internationally.
