For her Limited Edition, Sturtevant has reproduced a film-still. Depicting the face of an Eagle Owl, the image has been sourced from an online video library, the digital watermark intentionally left in place. The same image of the Owl also features as a wallpaper within her exhibition, and is tiled repeatedly on the walls of the first gallery space. This direct, immediate style of repetition is what forms the core of Sturtevant’s practice.

Elaine Sturtevant (1924 - 2014)
