FUNHOUSE



Peter Pan (or for that matter, Marina Abravomic) is not the only one getting the Bob Wilson treatment.  Working with Dissident Industries Inc, theater’s hallowed maverick, Robert Wilson has constructed video portraits–or caricatures?–of an odd population, including stars such as Isabelle Huppert and Brad Pitt to a…horned frog and Boris the porcupine (above).  Though the stylistic denial of naturalism, eerie humor, and rigorously aestheticized types are reminiscent of Matthew Barney’s divisive Cremaster Cycle, the poetic briefness and insularity of the pieces prevent deterioration into staleness or seeming self-indulgence, a criticism commonly directed at the former work.
Personal favorite?  Princess Caroline of Monaco.
