elaine sturtevant's house of horrors



A ghost train ride with a difference. Inspired by the Universal Studios thrill ride of old Hollywood monsters, Elaine Sturtevant's House Of Horrors is twisted so that it even includes the bad taste scene of Divine's doggy-doo eating from the then-notorious, now cult classic John Waters film Pink Flamingoes. Her Elastic Tango, a nine-piece pyramid video installation, is on show at the Anthony Reynolds gallery in London from next month, but I wish she'd brought this one too.  Both pieces, and the youtube clip above, are from her exhibition earlier this year at the Modern Art Museum in Paris. 

Sturtevant is 80 years old, by the way.
