Harmony Korine Pays Homage to VHS Tapes in New Exhibition at Gagosian. 10 years ago, Harmony Korine completely cleaned out a Blockbuster store in Nashville, Tennesee.
” My relationship with the individual films didn’t matter. I like that they can be touched and remade. These tapes contained stories. The stories are not just the films themselves. The stories are what’s inside the films, what’s hidden away behind the cover art and inside the box. I like being inside the box.”
“All the hours of love and angst it took to create. All the lost names on all the credit lists. So many titles. They have been turned inside out. They have been remade. A million sequels. There is only one Blockbuster left in the world now. The VHS is nearly obsolete, lost in the fog of analog. We are heading into something new now. Welcome to BLOCKBUSTER.”
