Leslie Thornton

With a comprehensive oeuvre that moves between film, photography, and installation, Leslie Thornton (born 1951) is regarded as one of the forerunners of contemporary media aesthetics. In her works she explores a critical and theoretical analysis of the moving image and in doing so challenges both the limits of representation and the relationship between the image and the viewer. Her solo exhibitions include Kunstverein Nürnberg (2020), Tate Modern, London (2020), Malmö Konsthall (2019), Rodeo, London (2018), and the Vienna Secession and Künstlerhaus Stuttgart together with James Richards (both 2018).
