Douglas Gordon: k.364
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Douglas Gordon: k.364 at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London.
Gordon’s film k.364 documents two Israeli musicians of Polish descent (Avri Levitan and Roi Shiloah) traveling from Berlin to Poland by train. Shown on two screens and with layered sound, the film follows the two men through a desolate landscape in a country whose tragic and violent history is barely resolved for them. Gordon films the musicians on this personal journey, isolating intimate moments at which their passionate love of music seems to move between them.
The publication features stills from the film and installation photography from the gallery as well as reproductions of ephemera from the journey—such as a rail map, filming authorization letter, and photographs of an intimate dinner—all bound with a metal spiral binding and housed in a slipcase. It also includes an interview with Gordon by Michael Berkeley and an interview with Levitan and Shiloah by Gordon.
