Show and Tell: Chloe Piene

ShareThis

Most heavy-metal concerts don’t start at 9 A.M. on Sunday. But Chloe Piene managed to draw a crowd of 250 to hear the Brooklyn band Candiria—and to turn Piene, briefly, into the crowd-surfing rock goddess of Self-Portrait (2002). For the 35-second video loop (inspired by Matthias Grünewald’s Isenheim altarpiece), “we had a spot on me so that my upper body would overexpose, and you get a glowing, ethereal figure supported by all these metalheads,” she says. “They’re anchored to the earth, like big trees—they throw their weight around.”

At Klemens Gasser + Tanja Grunert through December 18
