76 Grand Street, New York
Deitch Projects is pleased to present a new exhibition of video, sculpture and performance by Bec Stupak. Couched in an exotic harem-esque interior reminiscent of 1940?s B movies, her installation uses video, sculpture, performance, elaborate set design, body paint, and projected light to create a sense of euphoria.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is Bec's blind remake of Jack Smith?s legendary film Flaming Creatures. Using members of her demimonde, including performance drag group The Radical Fairies, Phiiliip, Agathe Snow, and other downtown celebrities, she recreates the 1963 cult classic based only on the impressions she?s collected from others of what the film consists of. Where costume matters more than actor or actress, anyone can get dressed up, loosened up, and sucked into this world of bestial, mystical erotica.
