Jordan Baseman: dark is the night

Seltzer, Gemma, Barrett, David, Brown, Camilla and Bonnell, Peter, eds. (2009) Jordan Baseman: dark is the night. ArtSway, UK. ISBN 9780955840630. [Book]


UK based film artist Jordan Baseman has made new work in and around Soho interviewing inhabitants who range from the notorious to the anonymous, including hedonists and faded actors. The interview process is at the heart of Baseman's work. He heavily edits this recorded material, juxtaposing the finished interviews with film footage taken in and around Soho, to construct narratives that mimic and yet subvert the traditional documentary film format. The end product is a series of films that are at once semi-narrative, poetic and revealing. The works will create a portrait of a place that is both constant and fleeting.
