Atom Egoyan: Steenbeckett
November 5, 2016 to January 2, 2017

Atom Egoyan: Steenbeckett (2002) brings to North America for the first time the Canadian filmmaker’s most important lens-based installation work to date. The extraordinary result of an Artangel commission for the former Museum of Mankind in London, U.K., Steenbeckett immerses the viewer in a continuously moving web of 35mm film strung floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Driven by a Steenbeck editing table, the 2,000-foot film loop features the last reel of Egoyan’s brilliant film adaptation of the Samuel Beckett play Krapp’s Last Tape. Contrasted with the digitally remastered version of the film that plays in an adjacent space, the installation contemplates the nature of memory and its recording while foregrounding Egoyan’s fascination with new and obsolescent technologies and the analog/digital divide. A major publication and international symposium accompanies the exhibition.
