Committed to Memory: Dan Adler on Renee Green

by Dan Adler

Artforum, May 2010, pp. 109-110

Dan Adler analyzes the theme of memory in the video work of Renee Green, how Green creates the impression of memory through juxtaposition. Green is "devoted to the struggle of remembering unpleasant things," including events such as 9/11. Although Green uses a documentary style, Adler argues that her work ultimately shows that it is impossible to completely reconstruct an event.
