Amanda Beech will complete the current cycle of exhibitions at MOT by premiering her latest video work, FALK, 2006, espousing her interest in the relationship between democracy and violence in neo-‐‑liberalism. Beech utilises the private thoughts, covert actions, particular interests and certain histories of key players, at the heart of Norway’s post-‐‑war past and its present politico-‐‑ economics. She delves into evidence of a scandal that implicates government, corporations, the ma?a, terrorists, federal, national and state agencies and the police. Using footage shot in Norway, Beech overlays a populist narrative styled text to biography the actions of a central protagonist, the lone conspiracy theorist as he uncovers his own “Watergate”
