In this in-depth essay, art historian and critic Shep Steiner explores the significance of the number two in Stan Douglas’s work. As Steiner demonstrates – covering works from the 1990s to the past 10 years – two encapsulates a logic that unfolds through most of the artist’s production. Two as that which structures montage; two-channel moving image installations; or two, as in the relationship between history and the archive.
