Lucy McKenzie
Nemesis Opening
Friday, Jan. 10, 2014
6:00 - 8:00 PM
The Artist's Institute
163 Eldridge Street
New York, NY 10002

The four films presented in Nemesis, the final episode of Lucy McKenzie’s season at The Artist's Institute, each rely on women in artificially induced states of old age, a masquerade that subtly intensifies their eroticism.

Lucy McKenzie premieres “The Girl Who Followed Marple”, a short film she conceived and produced in New York this winter with filmmaker Richard Kern. Part showcase for the fashion label Atelier E.B., part infomercial for a particular brand of menstrual cup, “The Girl Who Followed Marple” envelopes its commercial underpinnings in the familiarity of a made-for-TV thriller and the complicit voyeurism that a collaboration with Kern entails.

Two films from artist Milena Dopitova’s project Sixtysomething are also on view, along with an episode of the 1970s television series “Thriller,” in which pin-up actress Diana Dors dons a grey wig and latex wart. Please join us for the opening this Friday, January 10th, from 6 to 8 p.m.
