The Ontological Cowboy
Marie Losier
July 1, 2006–July 31, 2006
French-born, New York–based filmmaker/curator Marie Losier creates evocations of cinema past, reflecting diverse influences that range from the canonical (Carl Theodor Dreyer) to the contemporary (Guy Maddin). Electrocute Your Stars (2004, 8 mins.) is Losier's unconventional portrait of a bathing Kuchar as he talks about his weather diaries, reads comic books, and describes the making of his classic Hold Me While I'm Naked. Selected for this year's Whitney Biennial, The Ontological Cowboy (2005, 16 mins.) celebrates playwright Richard Foreman, founder of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in New York City's East Village, and his dedication to avant-garde theater.
