Ugo Rondinone - Cigarettesandwich

Edited by bdv (Bureau des Videos) (Paris), 2001 (signed)


Rondinone’s melancholic flâneur moves through the colors of the rainbow to the Tindersticks’ Sleepy Song. The video thus becomes a meditation on movement and repetition, self-abandonment and freedom, desire and idolatry. Imprisoned in the loop, the protagonist moves about like a celebrity without a world.
