Stan Douglas: Journey into Fear
Opening on November 8th, the gallery will present an exhibition of new work by the Canadian artist Stan Douglas. On view will be photographs as well as a DVD film installation. This will be the artist's fifth solo exhibition at David Zwirner.
Stan Douglas entitles his latest film "Journey into Fear". The work is based on two feature films by the same title: Norman Foster's 1942 war-time thriller and its remake, shot in Vancouver in 1975, directed by Daniel Mann. Whereas war-and-weapon espionage drives the plot in Foster's original film, Daniel Mann opted to substitute industrial espionage into the storyline of his remake, reflecting the changed world separating the two filmings of "Journey into Fear".
