A monumental video work by Oscar-winning film director Steve McQueen will be shown at Rotterdam’s newly opened Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen to coincide with the city’s international film festival.
Sunshine State, a double-sided two-channel video projection, will be the first artwork to occupy the fifth floor of the Depot, which opened in November 2021 with the radical proposition of making the entirety of Boijmans’s archives accessible to the public.
The work offers a meditative reflection on time and cinema. It opens with the image of a burning sun before exploring stills from The Jazz Singer, the 1927 film widely considered the first talkie in which dialogue was synchronized with images.
“McQueen is an uncompromising creator who shares our vision for everything cinema can be,” said Vanja Kaludjercic, the director of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. “The spectacular Depot in Rotterdam is a fitting location for this monumental work which invites audiences for a moment of reflection.”
