Eve Sussman Artist Talk at 21c Museum

The lecture was presented by the Kentucky School of Art Visiting Artist Program and 21c Museum, with support from the Brown-Forman Corporation.

Eve Sussman’s work incorporates film, video, installation, sculpture, and photography. In 2003 she began working in collaboration with The Rufus Corporation – an international ad hoc ensemble of performers, artists, and musicians and has produced the extraordinary motion picture and video art pieces 89 Seconds at Alcázar (2004) and The Rape of the Sabine Women (2007).

Sussman translates well known masterworks into her large scale re-enactments. Premiered at the 2004 Whitney Biennial, 89 Seconds at Alcázar is a 10-minute, continuously flowing single take that meticulously creates the moments directly before and after the image portrayed by  Las Meninas (1656). Shot on location in Greece and Germany, The Rape of the Sabine Women is a video-musical loosely based on the myth of the founding of Rome, inspired by the French neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David’s masterpiece, The Intervention of the Sabine Women (1794-1799).

More recently, whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir (2011) is a film that follows the observations and surveillance of a geophysicist code writer stuck in a futuristic city.
