Review

James Benning’s recent films are created with a series of consecutive shots, or just a single sequence. In the extension of this tendency, L. Cohen observes a special day at the Oregon farm using musician Leonard Cohen’s song in the background. This 45-minute experimental film with unchanging camera set-up leads us to meditate on time and change by monotonous scenery. Benning here shows the essence of time and image. An ensemble of dry grass, utility poles, gentle breeze, plows, tires, barrels and yellow fuel lie in the foreground as an object of still-life painting. As most of Benning’s films say, "immobility" paradoxically promotes a sense of "mobility," and duration makes it impossible to take one’s eyes off on change. [JANG Byungwon]
