Belgian artist David Claerbout's conceptual art piece White House constitutes a 13-hour film. On the surface, it dramatizes a protracted argument between two men, who stand before a neoclassical home in the south of France and undertake a systematic, repeated act of violence no less than 70 times over the course of the picture. Subtextually, however, the film uses the depicted events to investigate the nature of both still photography and the linear progression of the moving image. Claerbout originally mounted this work at the University of Brighton Gallery to commemorate the Brighton Photo Biennial.
