The Exalted. From the Pharaoh to Lady Gaga

MTAA's Infinite Smile 2005

“Infinite Smile” will be in the exhibition Wywyższeni. Od faraona do Lady Gagi (The Exalted. From the Pharaoh to Lady Gaga) in the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland from May 16th to October 23rd, 2012

For Infinite Smile, MTAA filmed a Warhol like 15 minute screen test. The pose is a 3/4 head shot to the right and looking slightly up into a light with a smile. The heads are framed against a brown felt background. The image invokes the proud workers and bright futures of social realism. The 15 minute shot is play 4x faster in a palindrome loop. The speed distills the 15 minute smile to twitches, strain and humor. The loop allows the smile to reach forward forever.
