in 1991, berlin based artist carrie beehan records a
series of demos that remain untouched for 20 years,
with only a cassette tape as proof of their existence.
having shared the group of songs with friend
clinton curtis-querci, enthusiastically he suggested
that the songs should be revisited & expanded upon.
now, 5 films accompany 5 re-worked tracks.
“tall tale” films with a “folk opera” filmic soundtrack.
SADO is video #2 of 5.
in this series, ms. beehan portrays 7 characters
of both genders that represent fragments of
the main character’s psyche and past.
existent are classic themes of lost love, sexual
naivety, struggles for power, & the existence of
family secrets that will be repeated if not confronted.
our heroine utilizes fortune telling rituals & magic
to guide her from the boudoir where she is first
abandoned, to a sewing factory where she is a sexual
submissive, to a open field of wild flowers where
she is targeted, & to a gypsy’s caravan where she
witnesses her genealogical past.. or future.
4 of 5 videos were all filmed entirely on green screen in a studio apartment in NYC's East Village.
