Josephine Meckseper: Recent Films
Carmen and Mark Holeman Gallery
New York-based artist Josephine Meckseper is renowned for her thought-provoking works that engage with questions about the role of consumerism and political engagement in contemporary society. The two films in this exhibition, 0% Down (2008) and Mall of America (2009), crystallize many of the core issues that Meckseper has explored through her works in other media, using imagery appropriated from advertising and documentary footage of a shopping mall to create seductive yet challenging works.
