Event Description

Mixing the influences of 1930s avant-garde cinema, ancient mythology, and ambient noise music, and featuring iconographic fragments from everyday life, Psychopompe—literally translated, “guide of the souls”—presents a new version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or The Modern Promethea. Surveyed here from its Romantic origins to its current status as recycled mythological waste, the novel shows by example how it is the destiny of any artwork to escape its author—perpetually transformed and reinterpreted until it finally dissolves. Originally created for Centre Pompidou, Paris, this will be the New York premiere of Psychopompe.
