Description:
This catalog for Belgian artist Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed 1997 film installation Looking for Alfred features sketches, collages, and behind the scenes production photos. The film, a deconstruction of the Hitchcock universe, uses the director’s famous on-screen cameos as launching points to explore key themes— lookalikes, doubles, obsession—that reoccur in both artist’s work. The book includes essays by Patricia Allmer, Thomas Elsaesser, and Tom McCarthy; texts by Jorge L. Borges, Jeff Noon, and Slavoj Zizek; and an artist interview by Chris Darke.
