Liz Magic Laser ‘My Mind is My Own’
Wilfried Lentz Rotterdam is hosting the first exhibition in The Netherlands by artist Liz Magic Laser (b. 1981, lives and works in Brooklyn, USA)
The opening and publication launch will take place on Friday 1 May from 4–7p.m. and the exhibition runs until 28 June 2015.
The title of the show, ‘My Mind is My Own’, is adopted from the artist’s new video of the same title featuring an 11-year-old actress, Ella Maré, training adults for public speaking. This video is shown alongside two other works, all displayed on flat screen monitors: The Thought Leader (2015), and a two-channel video, The Digital Face (2012). The videos are accompanied by a mirrored wall piece, Inflective Medallion. The motif of negative public address reverberates through this work as well as throughout all three videos. The show’s concept draws upon a theme central to Laser’s work: how scientific management is applied to theatre techniques in order to maximize the efficiency of a public figure’s performance.
In the same building at the same time ‘A Tale of a Tub’ will also be opening with 'The Story of the Stone'.
Moyra Davey's ‘The Revenants’ will be running till 21 June.
Opening times: Friday to Sunday from 1-6 p.m. or by appointment.
