Steve McQueen. Deadpan. 1997. 16mm film transferred to video (black and white, silent). Fractional and promised gift of Thea Westreich and Ethan Wagner. © 2016 Steve McQueen. Used by permission

Steve McQueen’s new film/video work Deadpan (1997), created for this Projects exhibition, shot from dramatic angles, with closeups and bird’s-eye views, whose resulting rhythm of monochromatic shapes distances the viewer from the narrative of the event.
