The film and video works in this exhibition focus on the tension between image and the viewer’s perception.



The films range from an epic, accusatory monologue about the offences of mainstream movies like Avatar, to a collage of YouTube footage showing a break-in at the Cairo State security headquarters in the aftermath of the Egyptian revolution.

TateShots talked to three of the seven artists featured in the exhibition: Objects in Mirror are Closer than they Appear, at Tate Modern until 17 February 2013
