GREED BY FRANCESCO VEZZOLI DIRECTED BY ROMAN POLANSKY




Much apart from the expressions of desperation that invaded the 100 Years (Version 2, P.S.1 Now 2009) exhibition at P.S.1, stood out Francesco Vezzoli's mini-film. This was perhaps the only mini-consolation prize walking through that deadly zone of videos--reeking vulgarity for art's sake. The film featured above is called Greed--conceptualized by Vezzoli and filmed by Roman Polansky himself (in 2008).

This isn't the actual one exhibited at the show, but it also stars Natalie Portman, who was in the art film called Right You Are, If You Think You Are showcased as part of the P.S.1 collection of performance arts on film.  It co-stars Michelle Williams--quite comical, it's a satire of how some women are perhaps much consumed with beauty/products to the point where they rival each other, which deflects appreciating one another.
