One of the first video pioneers, Fluxus artist Robert Filliou often-meditated on the medium in the early-to-mid 1980s, before retiring to monastic life. Here, the Janus-faced figure that reappears throughout his oeuvre is mobilized within a “modern video model” of measured gazes and screens. With single OCLC record discovered (BnF).
