KEIRA KNIGHTLEY STARS IN PEARSON WRIGHT’S INSTALLATION ART

Via Nowness is this one-minute clip from Stuart Pearson Wright’s Maze, an art installation currently up at the Riflemakers Gallery in London. Another take on the phrase “bodice ripper,” the two-channel Maze sees a corset-clad Knightley stumbling through branch-jutting topiary maze searching for her lover, played by the artist, Pearson Wright.

From Nowness:

While in this one-minute clip the two protagonists appear side by side, in the installation at Pearson Wright’s current show at Riflemakers in London, the piece consists of two opposing projections following the characters’ individual journeys, forcing the viewer to choose between, as the artist puts it, “romantic artist or fickle muse, earnest male or inconstant female.”
