Marilyn Minter (b. 1948)
Green Pink Caviar (2009)
Marilyn Minter continues her interest in blurring the boundaries between fine and commercial art. Co-opting advertising genres and related spaces, she mines a new platform to direct her first video. The eight minute high-definition video, Green Pink Caviar (2009) is a lush and sensual voyeuristic hallucination. Filmed with macro lenses, she captures the most minute movements of female mouths licking candy and cake decoration. Driven by her facination with the body, Minter’s film sets the stage for chance to happen.This 60 second trailer was played before the featured movie at The Sunshine Theater in New York City during the month of May 2009 to advertise Minter’s exhibition at Salon 94 Freemans.
