Jordan Baseman

The Most Powerful Weapon in this World

6 February 2010 - 9 May 2011

BALTIC presents an exhibition of recent work by American artist Jordan Baseman. Developed from the interview process that is at the heart of Baseman’s practice, the works in the exhibition use found footage and original material to accompany voice-driven narratives.

Additional Information

Enigmatic archive footage and an original soundtrack in Inside Man, accompany a story of criminality, pride and shame. Joy on Toast tells of the dynamic life of a botanical explorer that is tinged with sadness. In Nasty Piece of Stuff, images of street life provide a frantic, agitated counterpoint to the even tones of the narrator. Questioning documentary, narrative and authenticity, the exhibition explores belief systems, human motivation and experience through three thought-provoking, poetic and moving works.
