Sibling Topics (Section A)

Sibling Topics (Section A) by Ryan Trecartin

Like Alex Bag in the 1990s, Ryan Trecartin’s films use familiar characters and references to poke fun at the dire state of the economy and culture. The high speed and chaotic images are inspired by the Internet generation and popularity of YouTube viral videos. The characters wear dramatic clothing and heavy makeup to enhance the impact of their words for viewers. Trecartin recently presented his first New York solo museum exhibition at MoMA’s PS1 in Long Island City.
