Jeremy Millar Presents 'Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man (The Willows)'Jeremy Millar Presents 'Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man (The Willows)'
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2015

As the title may suggest to some, this work is an assemblage of two prior works: the photograph Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man (1840) by Hippolyte Bayard, and 'The Willows' (1907), a short story by Algernon Blackwood. In this story (considered by HP Lovecraft the greatest supernatural story ever written) a man is found drowned and marked with small funnel-shaped indentations — 'That awful mark!' — made by an unknown supernatural being; the title of Bayard's photograph (considered by some the first conceptual art photograph) suggested the identity of the unfortunate victim.

by BWW News Desk - Dec 26, 2014

Nam June Paik (1932–2006) was a visionary artist, thinker, and innovator. Considered the “father of video art,” his groundbreaking use of video technology blurred past distinctions between science, fine art, and popular culture to create a new visual language.
