Well here’s one way for Lindsay Lohan to score a surefire gig — starring in a 90-second short film as… herself! Even easier, there is no speaking involved. All Linds had to do was look pretty, swim and act very serious.
The film, “Lindsay Lohan” by Richard Phillips, is presented by the Gagosian Gallery, which describes it in this way:
The 90-second motion portrait of Lindsay Lohan, which Richard Phillips created in collaboration with the actor, draws from the conventions of Phillips’ painting, exploring the legacies of classical portraiture in relation to contemporary culture’s mediated representations. The film depicts Lohan engaged in a reformulation of classic performance tropes, with references including the iconic imageryof the Homeric identity split of Brigitte Bardot in Godard’s “Contempt” and the psychosexual amalgam of Bibi Anderson and Liv Ulman in Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona.” Employing a timeless Hollywood setting, Phillips repurposes an isolated Malibu mansion as a psychologically-charged backdrop, weighted with the desire and speculation of modern cinematic performance.
The film was included in “Commercial Break,” presented by the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, Venice, Italy, from June 1-5, during the 54th international exhibition of the Venice Biennale.
