Woody Vasulka: Light Revisited / Berg Contemporary / The Armory Show 2018

At The Armory Show 2018 in New York, the gallery Berg Contemporary (Reykjavík, Iceland) presented a rarely seen work by Woody Vasulka, entitled Light Revisited (1974-2001). Sourced from Vasulka’s historic video Noisefields (1974) that he created in collaboration with his wife Steina, the work is a single channel video projection and audio installation with screens and mirror.

Steina (born 1940 in Reykjavík) and Woody Vasulka (born 1937 in Brno) are pioneering video artists that have been producing work since the 1960s. They’ve produced an extensive series of videos, exploring the entire range of range of possibilities within video art and the electronic media, as well as creating electronic tools for art usage. The Vasulkas’ technological investigations into analog and digital processes and their development of electronic imaging tools place them among the primary architects of an electronic vocabulary of image-making. Applying an informal spontaneity to their formalist technical research, they chart the evolving formulation of an electronic imaging language as they hold a dialogue between artist and technology.
