RALEIGH, NC.- Im Not Much, But Im All I Think About, a video by Marilyn Minter, is on view in the media lab August 17, 2012 - February 11, 2013. Im Not Much, But Im All I Think About is in conjunction with GirlTalk, a major exhibition of women and text, featured in the main gallery, opening September 22, 2012 and on view until January 14, 2013. Marilyn Minters work is courtesy of the artist and Salon 94, New York, NY.
Shot with a slow motion camera, Im Not Much, But Im All I Think About features the letters M and E as well as M&Ms candy slowly falling through space and splashing into a viscous pool of metallic pigment. The Es are simply the Ms, turned sidewaysa reference to the artists initials. Minter describes the work as a playful commentary of the self-involved artist. The video is indicative of Minters oeuvre, seducing the viewer with luscious, high-gloss imagery.
The 30-minute video is directed by Marilyn Minter and shot by Darren Lew.
