Reflexive modernity: the work of Chris Paul Daniels

Crouch, Amelia (2016) Reflexive modernity: the work of Chris Paul Daniels. The Double Negative.

Abstract

A profile of the artist-filmmaker Chris Paul Daniels focusing on themes of artifice, authenticity and self-identity and considering his works Premier/Divisions (2013), A Tiger’s’ Skin (2014), You Are Here (2015), Safe at HOME (2015). Daniels’ witty and sometimes disquieting works are commentaries on our globalised contemporary culture. They probe the role that representations play in the construction of individual and national identity. Though often ostensibly documentaries they repeatedly use techniques that undercut the habitual authority of this format. The article was commissioned by the Contemporary Visual Arts Network North West (CVAN NW), as part of a regional critical writing development programme funded by Arts Council England.
