Gareth Long: Second, Third, Fourth
AA Bronson, Alissa Firth-Eagland and Liam Gillick
Gareth Long is a conceptual artist who explores the infinitely reproducibile nature of video. By playing with translation, narrative and medium-specificity, his projects result in pieces far-removed from their source, often barely resembling the original in their new, compromised object-form. As a former student of video-pioneer Colin Campbell, Long and his work are a testament to Campbell's ongoing influence. Gareth Long has exhibited widely, most notably at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. His bookwork, Don Quixote, was recently purchased by the Museum of Modern Art Library.
