Jeu de Paume
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Joshua Mosley’s impressive stop-motion animation, featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, depicts a 1907 tennis match set at the Château de Fontainebleau in France. Set in a miniature reproduction of the court as it stood before its 1990 renovation, the video seems to follow its own interests during course of the gameplay, with the camera mirroring the ebb and flow of a casual spectator’s attention.
