Keren Cytter, Vengeance & Rose Garden
Vengeance is a seven-part film in the style of a warped daytime TV soap opera, an intense, fragmented epic saga of glamour and backstabbing in the advertising industry. Vengeance nails the genre conventions even as it breaks them open in a deadpan but merciless satire of the reduction of life to material aspiration. Cytter will also show a new film work, Rose Garden, that takes scenes from Luis Buñuel’s Golden Age as its starting point. The artist will be present.
Keren Cytter was born in 1977 in Tel Aviv and lives and works in New York. She works with film, photography, performance, dance, theatre and poetry and has also published three well-received novels. Her most recent exhibitions include the soloe exhibitions MOP VENGEANCE at Pilar Corrias in London, Video Art Manual at Diverse Works Art Space in Houston, Texas, Based on a True Story at Oakville Galleries in Oakville, USA, and participation in the Marrakech Biennial 2014.
