Something Strange This Way - Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

Published by Hatje Cantz
ISBN 978-3-7757-3978-8
The multimedia works by the Canadian artist duo Janet Cardiff (*1957) and George Bures Miller (*1960) directly touch the senses. They are often reminiscent of childhood experiences, contrasting fun with the surprising and the uncanny. Something Strange This Way documents a unique presentation at the ARoS Aarhus Art Museum that for the first time unites six large-scale installations by the artists on the subject of the entertainment industry in a fairground-like course. Colorful lights, music, and maze sequences define the atmosphere and take visitors on a trip to a no man’s land situated somewhere between reality and fiction: besides The Killing Machine (2007), Opera for a Small Room (2005), and the interactive sound sculpture, Cabinet of Curiousness (2010), the works Storm Room (2009) und The Carnie (2010) are being shown in Europe for the first time. One of the special highlights of the exhibition is also the famous work The Forty Part Motet (2001), an elaborate sound installation with forty individual speakers.

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

Digital Publication

Lost in the Memory Palace: Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller is published in conjunction with the exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2013-14.

This publication offers an in-depth exploration of seven major works included in the exhibition: The Dark Pool, 1995; The Muriel Lake Incident, 1999; Road Trip, 2004; Opera for a Small Room, 2005; The Killing Machine, 2007; Storm Room, 2009; and Experiment in F# Minor, 2013.

Artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are internationally renowned for their work with new media and technologies, producing compelling environments for interactive experiences. The exhibition is focused on the theme of “the room” and provides an overview of their collaborative history. The room as a site of narrative production has a long and diverse history in art, but few artists have approached it with the imaginative focus, intensity and persistence of Cardiff and Miller.

Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller:
Works from the Goetz Collection


Published by Hatje Cantz
ISBN 978-3-7757-3286-4
The sound installations and sound images by the Canadian artist duo Janet Cardiff & Georges Bures Miller have received international acclaim. Over a period of years, Ingvild Goetz has incorporated an entire series of works by Cardiff (*1957 in Ontario) and Miller (*1960 in Alberta) into her collection. This publication is the first to present them all together, providing details about their creation and references and shedding light on their place in the artists’ oeuvre. In doing so, particular focus is placed on the key importance of sound as well as the special way that Cardiff & Miller deal with this very important—yet usually only subliminally perceived—aspect of current media art.
