Anthony McCall (London 1946) is seen as one of the main representatives of the avant-garde movements in the visual arts and the cinema of the 1970s. McCall’s work explores the most fundamental elements of cinema: light and projection. Since the early 1970s, he has produced a remarkable body of work ranging from drawings to performance art and large-scale light projection installations or ‘solid light films’. McCall’s solid light films inhabit the twilight zone between film and the visual arts, a key focal area of EYE’s exhibition policy. These sculptural light projections are at once minimalist in form and magical in effect, theoretical in essence and visceral when experienced.
