Step into Paul McCarthy's claustrophobic, vicious mind game. Stand in front of his larger-than-life multimedia installation “CSSC, Frederic Remington Charles Bronson“. Observe a golden, tortured body in Christian Lemmerz's virtual reality work “La Apparizione” and encounter "Katrina" out of finely worked marble which stages the frailty of life. All this is REALITY VIRTUAL REALITY, the exhibition by #PaulMcCarthy & @christianlemmerz, in which real works [REALITY] meet virtual works [VIRTUAL REALITY]. On view until August 26, at #MdbKLeipzig. 👁
Paul McCarthy's Virtual Reality work „C.S.S.C. Coach Stage Stage Coach VR experiment Mary and Eve“ builds on a scene from John Ford’s Western “Stagecoach” (1939), involving the two characters Mary and Eve. Caught in the claustrophobia of constant surveillance by the two women and their doubles, the viewer becomes part of a vicious mind game. All social conventions break down as the plot unfolds and escalates into a psychosexual trip of rape and humiliation.
