Signed artist’s proof, numbered 5 of 5, of Larry Clark’s 1992 video work, Nate, G Street Live.
Released three years before Clark’s debut feature film Kids, this video collages the dark confessions of adolescence captured by television talk shows. The shaky image and distorted color tones of the work evince a feeling of alienation and despair.
A classically Clarkian work focusing on adolescent alienation and nihilism in a video collage format heretofore unused. An exceptional and largely unseen lens into his explorations with moving image, one of Larry Clark’s earliest published video works.
Not on OCLC; located one copy at the Whitney. This example is in excellent, largely unused condition and plays without issue.
