Abstract:
Through a detailed study of the Hitchcock-related work of artists such as Matthias Muller and Christoph Girardet. Jahan Grimonprez, Pierre Huyghe, Douglas Gordon, and Atom Egoyan, this project facilitates a dialogue between the creative appropriation of Hitchcock's films and the cinematic practices that increasingly inform the wider field of the contemporary visual arts. Each chapter is structured around a consideration of how the art work in question has reconfigured, or 'remade' key Hitchcockian expressive elements and motifs - in particular, the relationship between mise en scene and the mechanics of suspense, time, memory, history, and death. In a career that extended across silent and sound eras, the British, European and Hollywood industries, and was always available to new audiences and technical innovations, Hitchcock film oeuvre is nothing if not a history of the cinema itself. As the work of these contemporary artists and artist-filmmakers shows, it was also a history of the future, a paradigm case par excellence .
