    Vanishing Point Marcia Thompson 2005 In 1996/7, I filmed my navel every month during my pregnancy. I was interested in the change shown on the close-up images contrasting to the real phenomenon that was not directly observed. The sequence of pictures pulsate as a heartbeat.

      Vanishing Line Marcia Thompson 1998 In 1996, I filmed the hair parting of all the people arriving at a party in Brazil. As my work was always related to painting, I called it “Vanishing Line”. This line also reminded me of a “thread of thought”. The people I met there were influential in my life changing decisions and I think that very often what people say becomes part of our memories and is just as important as our primary experiences.

        Lines Marcia Thompson 2014 I had several films of the sky, mostly tracks of airplanes and fireworks exploding. They formed lines made out of dots. This fundamental concept interests me. I have put the clips together, with the lines going to the same direction and I reduced the colours of the images.

          not titled (what ? ... ) Marcia Thompson 2014 In 2014 I was constructing a sculpture made out of newspapers torn by hand and the sound of tearing these became part of my routine. I decided to join this sound to images of mouths opening before they say something. It does not matter the content of the newspaper nor of our conversations, the interaction becomes part of ourselves. The title also refers to Beckett's monologue "Not I".

              From the Collection of Christophe de Menil Auction open for bidding December 2 - 12, 2014 paddle8.com/auctions/christophedemenil Christophe de Menil discusses her journey as a collector, from picking Matisse cutouts with her father for the family collection, to a taste for the severe in her personal one. In her Upper East Side garden, in the midst of three Robert Wilson chairs created for his "Einstein on the Beach" opera, de Menil offers food for thought for young artists, and contemplates her grandson Dash Snow's approach to photography, which inspired her own. de Menil's family is most closely associated with Houston's Menil Collection, a dynastic project manifested in one of today's leading contemporary art museums, anywhere in the world. The collection is home to some of the 20th-century's greatest artworks, and what many consider Mark Rothko's piece-de-resistance, the Chapel. A friend of Rothko and many more legendary creators, from Merce Cunningham to Robert Wilson, Christophe de Menil has played an instrumental role in growing her family's collection through personal relationships with, and deep understandings of, artists like Willem de Kooning and Barnett Newman, hand-in-hand with a mantra of "fewer, stronger" works passed down by her father, John de Menil. The de Menil artistic legacy was inherited by her grand-sons Dash and Max Snow, too, who became significant art world figures in their own rights, not as collectors, but as artists in New York's renascent Downtown scene.

                      This video is inspired by anger and disenchantment with the current vision of society as I see it today. I aimed to get a snapshot of some of the results of the implementation of current government policies. As a fine artist I wanted to look at these situations and show them to others. I genuinely felt that many people, including me, really didn't understand that for some, the scenes in this film were and are everyday realities, entered into to survive.
