Citius, Altius (2012) is a 10 mins, split-screen single-channel video work, commissioned by the London/Seoul-based agency SUUM Project, for the Samsung IOC Olympics Media Art Collection.
Citius, Altius takes as its point of departure the artist’s earlier 5-screen moving image installation, Faster, Higher, originally commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and BFI (2008). It is one of nine pieces commissioned for the Samsung IOC Olympics Media Art Collection, alongside work by Kota Ezawa, Cao Fei, Yeondoo Jung, Kimsooja, Torsten Lauschmann, Emily Wardill, Hiraki Sawa and Kyungwoo Chun.
The collection premiered at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, (11-12 August 2012), as a weekend of screenings under the title Blue Crystal Ball. Blue Crystal Ball was then presented as part of the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival in Manchester, in the form of an exhibition at the Holden Gallery, Manchester Metropolitan University (30 August-20 September 2012)
