Created by Hugo Arcier, Ghost City is a video installation reinterpreting the set of the very popular game Grand Theft Auto V. The spectator is plunged into an environment without any population. The focus is put on architectural and graphic elements, using the camera’s front clipping plane as a tool to reveal structure of architectural elements found in the GTA landscape.
This installation was first shown at Hugo’s solo exhibition “Fantômes numériques” at Lux Scène Nationale. April 29 – July 9.
