random ramblings of an unconscious mind
The identical twins, who are currently exhibiting their work under the title “On Deciphering the Pharmacist’s Prescription for Lip-Reading Puppets” in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, are not your typical directors. Anyone familiar with their work can attest to that.
According to the press release: Quay Brothers have produced over 45 moving image works, including two features, music videos, dance films, documentaries, and signature personal works, including The Street of Crocodiles(1986), the Stille Nacht series (1988–2008), Institute Benjamenta(1995), and In Absentia (2000). They have also designed sets and projections for opera, drama, and concert performances such as Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa (1991), Ionesco’s The Chairs (Tony-nominated design, 1997), Richard Ayre’s The Cricket Recovers(2005), and recent site-specific pieces based on the work of Bartók and Kafka.
In addition to their better known films, this exhibition will include never-before-seen moving image works and graphic design, drawings, and calligraphy, presenting animated and live-action films alongside installations, objects, and works on paper.
The exhibition will include about 50min of “lost films” from their early years, and excerpts from stage productions and multiple TV commercials.
