Loris Gréaud’s Sculpt is a social science fiction movie that depicts unprecedented shapes and experiences, along with obsessions and fantasies. The film follows the thoughts of a man about whom we know very little, who seems to be constantly developing the concept of what experiencing beauty, thought, or obsession can be, despite the risks to which the subjects are exposed in the long term.
Sculpt, produced for LACMA, is Loris Gréaud’s first major exhibition project to take place on the west coast of the United States and his first feature-length film. It offers a unique experience to each viewer who sees it as an immersive environment and the film’s content will be interpreted differently by each solitary visitor.
For this presentation, the Bing Theater will be reconfigured for only one audience member at a time. Screenings take place thanks to the generous loan of the film from Voodoo Queen Priestess Miriam Chamani who has permitted its distribution solely at LACMA. In this chrysalid state, the film is on loan for an unspecified time, waiting to mutate into one of the obsessions it describes in its own fiction, making the LACMA screenings a rare occurrence.
