During Art Basel Miami Beach 2010, The Wolfsonian-FIU design museum in Miami Beach was showcasing the temporary exhibition “Speed Limits” and “Seduce Me”, an installation / presentation by Isabella Rossellini, Andy Byers, and Rick Gilbert.
After her highly praised “Green Porno”, Isabella Rossellini’s Award-winning comical series on how animals mate, she and her collaborators Andy Byers and Rick Gilbert realized another series titled Seduce Me. For the presentation of Seduce Me at The Wolfsonian, Andy Byers realized a site-specific installation that features the complex and imaginative paper sculptures made by Andy Byers that are used in the videos for sets, props, and costumes. The site also features episodes of Green Porno and the Seduce Me videos that have been created, produce, directed, written, and performed by Isabella Rossellini and produced and art directed by Rick Gilbert.
VernissageTV had the chance to meet up with Andy Byers and Rick Gilbert at The Wolfsonian. In this conversation with Sabine Trieloff, Byers and Gilbert talk about the Green Porno and Seduce Me projects: the creation process, the collaboration with Isabella Rossellini, their background, and future projects. More information is available after the jump.
