Over the past decade Mark Boulos has expanded the scope of time-based media in exhibitions. His ethnography transforms actual life into essay-like hybrid films blending documentary cinema with art gallery installation. Whether set amidst traffic in London’s financial district, conflict in the Nigeria Delta, a Catholic home in Damascus, rebel territory in the Philippines, a field in Syria, a church in Greenwich, or upon an acting stage in Hollywood, Boulos traces the complexities of our era at the fringes of politics and cinema. Each montage composes narrative in a manner that evades the codes of representation that guide contemporary video art.
