普罗维登斯,R.I. [新葡京平台]-不久前, 电影制作人和艺术家 伊丽莎白Subrin watched a 1983 interview with the late French actress Maria Schneider and became transfixed.
谈话, 表面上是为了报道施耐德当时的电影生涯, took an unexpected turn when the interviewer asked her about the controversial film “Last Tango in Paris.施耐德拒绝发表评论:1972年, 的then-19-year-old, 与48岁的马龙·白兰度合作, had unwillingly filmed an unscripted rape scene for the movie that traumatized and haunted her for the rest of her life. 而不是, 她突然昏倒了, 对电影行业内外权力失衡和性别歧视的先见之明的思考.
在安装中, 三个获奖的女演员——马纳尔·伊萨, Aïssa Maïga and Isabel Sandoval — play Schneider in three separate reenactments of that 40-year-old interview. 而伊萨的再现仍然忠实于施耐德的语气和话语, Maïga and Sandoval subtly change their answers and body language to reflect changes in the ways actresses have spoken about consent and power over the decades.
安装，说 新葡京娱乐平台艺术学院 展览总监兼贝尔画廊首席策展人凯特·克拉松, is a powerful exposé of the film industry’s — and many other industries’ — tendency to silence people, 最常见的是女性, 谁会坦率地谈论他们在工作场所遭受的性别歧视和性侵犯.
“Maria Schneider was voicing her experiences with uneven and gendered power dynamics in the film industry decades before the #MeToo movement began,克拉松说. “伊丽莎白Subrin’s project untethers Schneider from ‘Tango’ and allows the nuances of her interview to be reimagined within three extraordinary performances.”
