Horse by John Stezaker
Ikon Gallery, Birmingham
Until 03rd September
John Stezaker, renowned for his smart conceptualism and use of appropriation through collage, was arguably the first postmodernist to show at Ikon in the 1980s.
His video Horse (2012) will be screened in Ikon’s Tower Room. It consists of 3600 images of various horses from a side angle, taken from the front page of the same racehorse catalogue over the past 30 years. Near-identical pictures are projected at 23 frames per second creating a shaking and flickering portrait of a horse.
