Gréaud spoke to us about the project, and shared stills from Sculpt.
On the evolution of film:
“I don’t think there is a true evolution of film. It’s actually quite conservative paradoxically—same as the art world. Trying to question the way it functions often produces the same result: a film. Zero-Sum Game.”
“The project has been made specifically for LACMA—even if it goes beyond the museum space. I always had in mind that this will take place a few kilometers from Hollywood studios. I’m trying to include my ‘film’ in a global gesture in the collective imagination of the film industry.”
On the element of fantasy in art:
“Art shouldn’t shape fantasy. Good art is certainly blurring [fantasy] with everything else, potentially making it porous to other feelings, gender, reality, time, forms, and so on.
On the role of art in interpreting femininity:
“I’m thinking of this J.G. Ballard quote from Rushing to Paradise : ‘Perhaps the future belongs to magic, and it’s we women who control magic.’ I personally don’t believe that art should or could change anything.”
