Artist Richard Phillips, has returned to his muse, yes, Lindsay Lohan, for a second 90-second “motion portrait” of the actress that plays off of sun, sand and water.
It’s a follow-up to a similar project last year with similar themes.
The short film will premiere June 11 at Art Unlimited at Art Basel in Switzerland, The Gagosian Gallery will be presenting the work as it did with Phillips’ Lohan collaboration last year.
Although the clip is only 90 seconds, Phillips enlisted some heavyweights to screen the actress. Director Taylor Steele, who also co-directed “Lindsay Lohan,” co-directed here. He specializes in surf films. Pro-surfer Kassia Meador was Lindsay’s stunt double. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk scored the short film.
What makes this art? Well, because it’s a “post-modern take on the surf film genre through an abstract framework of imagery in which the actress engages in cinema performance tropes inspired by contemporary film noir,” according to a statement.
Phillips presented his earlier work “Lohan” and a film of retired porn star “Sasha Grey,” at the Venice Biennale as part of the “Commercial Break” film project.
The Gagosian will feature the latest work this fall.
Not bad for a girl who spent time in house arrest for drunk driving, had numerous parole violations and entered a no contest plea to a jewelry heist charge.
Lohan is currently filming a Lifetime movie based on the life of the late Elizabeth Taylor during her stormy marraiges to Richard Burton. Now that’s art. Check out a trailer for the short below.
