About

Shown for the first time in the UK, Julian Rosefeldt's film installation, Clown, is set in the
middle of a dense tropical rainforest where, from the far distance, a clown appears climbing
through the rocky path of a stream, disappearing in and out of view back into the forest.
Exploiting the overtly theatrical figure of the clown as a nonsensical agent of the human
condition, Rosefeldt's mise-en-scéne acts out the uncertain connection between the deliberate
absurdity of the situation and the apathy of the event unfolding, where the costume and
extreme surroundings (the forest) point out the film's double play on disguise.
