The Separateness of Things, Victor Burgin

2005

Abstract

In 1986 Victor Burgin made a series of photographic works based on Edward Hopper's painting Office at Night 1940 featuring a female secretary and male boss. In this paper, which is based on a talk given at Tate Modern in 2004 at the time of a major Hopper exhibition, Burgin described the relationship of his own works to Hopper's painting, exploring the sexual codes implicit in both.
