DESCRIPTION

Eve Sussman | Rufus Corporation is a presentation of the video artist's recent projects. This exhibition will present two major video installations, including an entirely new exploration of her noted film The Rape of the Sabine Women. A feature-length video-musical, The Rape of the Sabine Women is a contemporary reinterpretation of the eponymous Roman legend in a domestic 1960s setting, which Sussman has transformed into a five-part video installation. Also on view will be her 89 Seconds at Alcázar, a film based on the Diego Velazquez's enigmatic Las Meninas, 1656. In this work, Sussman uses film to elucidate the circumstances of the exact moment that the painting aims to portray, a moment that has become immortalized in one of the most important paintings in art history.
