For her first institutional exhibition in Switzerland, Jacqueline Fraser (*1956, New Zealand) presents a new site specific installation at Kunsthalle Zürich. It is the latest in a series of works, begun in 2011, that propose fictional remakes of arthouse and Hollywood films. In these, the premise and visual language of a select film is dismantled and reimagined. Fraser re-directs: using discarded fabric, torn magazines, party paraphernalia, plastics, veneers, tinsels, overlapping soundtracks and projections, she re-casts, re-scores and re-costumes the cinematic template as deconstructed storyboard.
