Target Language is a collection of videos from Andrew Norman Wilson, Anne de Vries, Harm van den Dorpel, and Oliver Laric. Appropriating visual material from tech marketing, Disney movies and the decorative arts, language from pop culture and philosophy, and even cannibalizing their own work, these artists investigate continuities so familiar as to be invisible. History repeats itself, images are torn down and redeployed, and evolutionary strategies move freely between the natural and the technological. Taken as guided meditations or video essays, these are conceptual lenses on a world that is both wildly interconnected and awash with competing perspectives on what has come before.
