Behind-the-scenes: Arlo Mountford ‘The Folly’ 2007-09

Arlo Mountford’s three-channel animated video work The Folly 2007-09 has been installed in the Gallery of Modern Art’s Media Gallery. In the work Mountford animates three paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder: The hunters in the snow 1565, The harvesters 1565 and Landscape with the fall of Icarus c.1558. Mountford set in motion the action implied in each painting, which occurs successively as the soundtrack leads the viewer’s attention from one animation to the next.
