With his current exhibition Face to Face, Anthony McCall continues the development of his “solid light” works, a series of digital videos of meticulously choreographed intersecting lines and curves which are projected in darkened, haze-filled rooms, producing three-dimensional forms constructed of light.

Until now, the imagery has been projected on walls or floors. For the first time, McCall’s linear forms are projected onto two-sided screens suspended in mid-air, facing each other across the room. The animated line drawings are visible from both sides of each screen, creating paradoxical similarities and inversions with the opposing screen on the far side. At the same time, the two large-scale volumetric forms, which can be inhabited or simply walked around, are seen in direct counterpoint with the original linear “footprint” drawings that produced them.
