Oleksandr Hoisan deploys new technologies – specifically ”open universe” video-games – for cinematic ends. His preferred location: cyberspace. Here he stages a masterful détournement on 2004 classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, minutely exploring a simulacrum-ersatz American city with quizzical, anthropological and decidedly European detachment. – Neil Young
