(Following the right hand of Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits, 2005-2006)
Pierre Bismuth is the first French artist to win an Oscar (in 2005 for “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), and he’s still in the movies! His LARGE IMAGE is part of a series of abstract drawings where he places a screen in front of a video and traces with a felt pen the movements of a hand of an actress or actor. He’s done Gene Tierney in “Laura,” for example, and here we have Marilyn Monroe right hand in “The Misfits.” Fasten your conceptual seat belt when Pierre’s around; the action doesn’t get any better than this.
