Sparano + Mooney's A Way of Working is on view through July 15, 2023 in the Exit Gallery.
Dec 2, 2011 – Jan 21, 2012
German artist Mirko Martin’s video, Noir, documents a night during the artist’s half-year stay in Los Angeles in 2008. Monitoring gang activity, police helicopters circled the neighborhood on a regular basis. On a particularly noisy evening, Martin went out to capture some sound. Within minutes, he heard gunshots. Over a black screen, Noir captures these gunshots and conversations with several residents and passers-by who try to make sense of what they heard and didn’t hear, saw and didn’t see.
Martin is a Fulbright Scholar, and his video work has been exhibited around the world from the United States and United Kingdom to Japan, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France.
