"Brice Dellsperger: Body Double 15"
2003-04-02 until 2003-04-20
Anderson Gallery, Drake University
Des Moines, IO, USA United States of America

The Anderson Gallery proudly presents Brice Dellsperger: Body Double 15 featuring a single-channel DVD projection by Paris-based emerging artist Brice Dellsperger. Since 1995, Dellsperger has undertaken a postmodern rereading of cinema by adapting over fifteen celebrated movie sequences under the generic title Body Double, referring to Brian de Palma's 1984 film. His works have reconstituted segments of canonical cinema history in their dissections of such films as John Badham's Saturday Night Fever, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, David Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho.

The Anderson Gallery will present Body Double 15 (2001), a single-channel DVD projection that takes as its scaffold the famous museum pick-up sequence from Brian de Palma's Dressed to Kill (1980). In this ten-minute piece the artist, dressed as a woman, played both halves of the trysting couple in 'sync' with the de Palma and composer Pino Donaggio's original audio track. The two separate performances were then layered together.

Brice Dellsperger: Body Double 15 will be the French artist's first solo museum exhibition in the United States. Dellsperger's works, which have been gaining much critical acclaim in recent years (New York Times, Flash Art, Time Out New York, Cahiers du Cinéma, Le Journal des Arts), have been shown at the Museum of Modern Art's Mediascope, New York; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Villa Arson, Nice; Art Basel Miami Beach, Miami; Art 33 Basel's Art Unlimited, Basel; the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol; and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris.
