Untitled (New York): a silent slomo video by Ivan Argote

My first discovery of Ivan Argote’s work was actually more of a double take. A video snippet surfaced of a young man in a museum walking up to two framed Mondrians and brazenly spray-painting a long, black squiggle across both, in broad (museum hours) daylight. Or, at least, that’s what supposedly happened. Much of his other work keeps you guessing, too, and his website, a full-screen, looping video experience, seems the perfect vessel for his medium. My favorite is Untitled (New York), a series of silent slomo clips featuring groups of city dwellers, all turning suddenly and in unison back towards the camera, reacting to something unknown.
