Douglas Gordon

We designed the exhibition identity for a new group of video works by Douglas Gordon during the 63rd Film Berlinale, 2013. For Sharpening Fantasy, 2012 Gordon travelled to Tangier, where he filmed traditional knife grinders in different locations within the Kasbah of the seaport city. The simple repeated movements of the men become hypnotic and are set to a soundtrack of their days work. We took am ambiguous still from one of the key pieces where a hand seems to gesture in a ritualistic way and pared this with a reverse side that subtly referenced cinema tickets and their repeated printed info. This was all foiled in black against a red from the flag of Morocco and with additional info picked out in white.
