Documentation of gunshot incident. German artist Mirko Martin’s video, Noir, documents a night during the artist’s half-year stay in Los Angeles in 2008. Monitoring gang activity, police helicopters circled the neighborhood on a regular basis. On a particularly noisy evening, Martin went out to capture some sound. Within minutes, he heard gunshots. Over a black screen, Noir captures these gunshots and conversations with several residents and passers-by who try to make sense of what they heard and didn’t hear, saw and didn’t see. Exhibition held in the New Genres Gallery.
