Robert Wilson: Video Portraits

Posted by Melanie / March 13, 2008

CONFESSION: Macaulay Culkin excites me to no end. Eagerly awaiting Robert Wilson: Video Portraits tomorrow night- a range of video portraits of various stars ranging from princesses to Nobel Prize winners and of course, the ultimate child star himself. I am excited for two reasons:

1) I find Macaulay Culkin particularly fascinating; He is regarded as a bit of a freak, despite that he has never done anything desperate or ‘washed up’. He was someone who had fame forced on him at such a young age that he grew to be somewhat of a recluse, only appearing in extremely random and interesting films where his presence becomes an added bonus. While other actors waste much effort trying to aquite fame, Culkin simutaneously benefits and suffers from living a life destined by it. He could live in a cave for the next sixty years and we would still remember his Home Alone face.

2) Robert Wilson has stated a variety of influences for this film (including pure light and colour) but has said that the film is meant to have an open inspiration over it’s audience and refuses to label it with any fixed meaning, so that people will just appreciate their own interpretations from it.

Playing March 15th, 7pm at the Contemporary Museum of Art as part of FIFA.
