Brent Green's Gravity

Within the last month, I've seen two Brent Green pieces that were new to me, both brilliant. First, Paulina Hollers at Site Santa Fe (mentioned in this previous post). More recently, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then at Diverseworks in Houston. The latter piece was shown as part of The Second Program in Dallas and I unfortunately couldn't make it; but Diverseworks had a wonderful installation including the main video plus three related videos plus a sort of 3-D, room-sized panoply comprising a sprawling banner, giant corrugated cardboard cutouts, painting, and texts. Here are some installation pics; below is a video of Green with some background on the videos and a related sculpture that was not included at Diverseworks. (The show runs through Dec. 19.)
