Banks Violette Horse
I went to the Bank Violette exhibition at the Maureen Paley gallery on Herald Street last night.
Banks had projected a looping image of a galloping white horse onto a screen of water vapour in the middle of a darkened room. The effect was such that it appeared to hover like a hologram, or a ghost and it was really specatacular. It was so simple but really effective.
Apparently, one little girl who went along with her family liked it so much that she now wants a ghost horse for Christmas. Banks was said to have felt bad; potentially the family’s Christmas will be ruined if fail to provide such a thing…..
I wish I had a picture of it, but it wouldn’t do it justice anyway.
