Video art: Candice Breitz

Johannesburg

In her first solo show at Jo’burg’s Goodman Gallery, Candice Breitz probes the dreams and promises embedded in mainstream cinema.

She crossed three ­continents to explore the rituals governing the on-camera and off-camera personae of child actors and adults who found fame this way. Footage was shot in film capitals Los Angeles, Mumbai and Lagos as Breitz sought to “observe and grasp the aspirational logic shared by Hollywood, Bollywood and Nollywood”.
