Natural Born Artists
Steven Bos and Susan Lanting
Saturday, May 26, 2012
The Hills Esthetic Center hosts a special one-night screening of the Amsterdam based collaborative couple, Bos & Lanting. Bos & Lanting’s unique practice leaves the art object behind while focusing on the physical bodies of the artists; re-engaging a concept of soul that often eludes more static practices. “Natural born artists” takes the body, emotion, and character of “artists” and cinematically restages them as transformed qualities of unknown form. Bos & Lanting invert the romantic ideas behind the construction of an artist and artwork, retaining a control in the production, reception and distribution of their work. Everything is scripted, everything is glossed over, and most importantly, everything is instinctual.
Bos & Lanting will be screening a selection of 2D and 3D videos for this event. All shot in high-definition three-dimensions and covered in sequins, these works draw inspiration from a broad range of American Cinema, including Bonnie and Clyde, Natural Born Killers, and Apocalypse Now. Come and join us this Saturday for an evening of viewing pleasure.
