How to Act
Dutch artist Gabriel Lester (*1972) incorporates elements of film, drama, music and rhythm in his installations. He began his career as a rapper and worked in the film industry while studying art during the 1990s.
"My films and installations work from the inside out. They aim to propose dramatic tension and question the role of the spectator. These dramatic propositions are either implicitly narrative, explicitly visual or both at once.
The frequent use of sequences, parallels, visual and/or spatial edits compose a tension span or even a storyline. Subjects such as psychology of space, the evocation of dilemma, semiotic set up and pay-off and a re-visits to memorized locations, surface frequently in my art works." (Gabriel Lester)
