Lost Art: A Cargo Cult Romance

Vera Frenkel

1986, 28:00 minutes, colour, English


The creation of an image from unrelated parts is the event in Lost Art that opens up the hidden workings of the millennial fantasy. The tape reveals the curious and contagious desire for us to betray our senses and believe in norms (from rules of representation to false messiahs) that are out of whack.
