11 October 2002 - 26 January 2003

The American premiere of Simpson’s new film installation, 31, commissioned for the exhibition Documenta XI.
In 31, the camera tracks a month in the life of an unknown woman, seen in a grid of thirty-one small projections. Close observance of these interlocking narratives reveals that she is not always where we expect her to be.
