Werner Herzog: Hearsay of the Soul
July 23, 2013–April 20, 2014
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
A new acquisition by the Getty Museum’s Department of Photographs, Hearsay of the Soul (2012) is a five-channel video installation by celebrated German filmmaker Werner Herzog. It combines the early-seventeenth-century landscape etchings of Dutch artist Hercules Segers with recent scores and a performance by Dutch cellist and composer Ernst Reijseger, resulting in a richly layered work that is at once intimate and epic.
