JOHN ISAACS - The Matrix of Amnesia (1997)
12 min video loop.



A video which shows a “savage” taken from an imaginary diorama of our ancestors who ceaselessly runs through fields, meadows and woods.
In a wider range, the work of John Isaacs relates to the pervasive current of unease and anxiety that identifies our modern way of life and its thinking as somehow warped, disjunctive and off balance. Playing with the extremities and taboos of the modern day norm, Isaacs’ art reveals a number of uncomfortable truths that, he believes, we are all, to some extent, conscious of.
