s latest incarnation? It isnt as the queen of Cell Block C (although she did report to Lynwood Jail and receive an ankle monitoring device today), but rather as a contemporary art muse.
The troubled actress is the focus of a new art film by painter Richard Phillips. Called Lindsay Lohan, the video features the actress in two guises: swimming in an oceanfront infinity pool (wearing a white bikinivery Brigitte Bardot), and gazing at a screen in a black polo-neck.
Its voyeuristic and wistful and reads like a fragrance advertand its impossible to miss the fact that Lohan looks fresher and more big-screen-ready than she has for years.
What fascinates me about Lindsay are not her problems but the way she embodies an eminence on the level of a Bardot or an Ullmann, Phillips told the New York Times T Magazine. Shes a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic. She can also bring forward an existential presence that speaks to the isolated self.
The 90-second video will screen as part of a mobile installation produced by Moscows Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (the art institution founded by former Pop editor Dasha Zhukova
) at next weeks Venice Biennale. The Commercial Break installation consists of 80 videos, to be screened on a Jumbotron barge traversing the Grand Canal from 1-5 June. The project has been called provocative for its commercial-style exploration of the intersection of art and business, and the fact that it flouts Venetial laws prohibiting public advertising.
But thats just Lohan: rustling art-world feathers in Italy, all the way from house arrest in LA.
