The 55 photographs in McQueen’s ‘Barrage’ sequence (1997) chronicle a different, less interesting direction for the artist. The abject rolls of carpet that Parisian street sweepers lay out in the gutters to redirect their streams of water probably have their heritage in Atget’s depopulated scene-of-the-crime streets, and could have found a place in the 1996 ‘Informe’ show, but their weak anecdotal quality pales alongside some of the strongest film work around.
