David Lamelas: Time Is a Fiction

A pioneering 60s Argentinean conceptual artist who has lived in Europe and the U.S., David Lamelas makes visually undistinguished films that seek “active” viewers as they explore ideas about time, space, and truth. His first, A Study of Relationships Between Inner and Outer Space (1969), surveys a London gallery and the region around it, including airports and the underground. The eight sections of To Pour Milk Into a Glass (1972) show milk filling a glass, milk missing a glass, and milk falling on a shattered glass, seemingly equating success and failure. The longest, The Desert People (1974), is a mockumentary avant la lettre, interviewing five people supposedly studying an Indian tribe. 95 min.
