Burden

burden550

Encapsulates Burden's prolific, provocative career and shows why he was one of modern art's most original, daring voices.” –Rolling Stone

While still in his early 20s, Chris Burden had earned himself a place in art history, by having himself shot (Shoot, 1971), locked up (Five Day Locker Piece, 1971), electrocuted, (Doorway to Heaven, 1973), cut (Through the Night Softly, 1973), crucified (Trans-fixed, 1974), and advertised on television (4 TV Ads, 1973–77). But as the 70s progressed, Burden artistically reinvented himself with multitude of assemblages, installations, kinetic and static sculptures and scientific models. Tim Marrinan and Richard Dewey’s film follows him in the studio and mines his incredible archive to tell the story of a groundbreaking artist. (U.S., 2016, 98m, Magnolia Pictures)
