Douglas Gordon: Iles flottantes (If Monet Met Cézanne, in Montfavet) at Instituto Moreira Salles, São Paulo, Brazil.

On view April 15 through August 26, 2018.

A 2008 video installation by Douglas Gordon, shown on two monitors, is on display in Brazil. The work presents a garden strewn with skulls being gradually flooded. Filmed in the garden of the artist’s residence in Montfavet, the work invokes an immediate parallel with Claude Monet’s infamous Water Lilies.
