SMART PROJECT SPACE Artist...
ARTISTS' BIOPIC CINEMA
SMART PROJECT SPACE/AMSTERDAMExhibition until 21 December 2008
ARTISTS'BIOPIC CINEMA is a solo exhibition organized in conjunction with
The ARTISTS' BIOPIC CINEMA Exhibition transverses all 6 gallery spaces at SPS which artist Matthie Laurette playfully described as "a sort of Institutional Critique meets Film Industry meets Art Sociology meets Art Economy meets Art History".
In transforming all six-gallery spaces into mini cinemas, Laurette presents the 'mythologized life of the artist' through screening 18 specifically chosen full-length feature films daily representing mythical characters-- Andry Warhol, Rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh, Francis Bacon, Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dali and other famous artists.
The allegory of the artist as a temperamental genius and free from the constraints of society is played out in Laurette's new work and visitors are given an excellent opportunity to observe ways in which the film industry cultivates, feeds and perpetuates the myth of the artist-genius.
Matthieu Laurette established himself in the 1990's with his exploration of the relationships between art, spectacle, media and economy using a variety of media, from TV and video to installation and public interventions.
