About Keren Cytter
Many of Cytter's works refer to existing films; for instance, Repulsion (2005), a series of three short videos, is based on Roman Polanski's 1965 movie of the same name. Conceived as "three layers of one movie that had no plot," Cytter's resulting films extract the isolated moments from Polanski's psychological thriller that the artist found the most captivating, with the actors portraying the protagonist and two supporting characters changing roles in each. This analytic approach to film production was similarly applied to the conventions of video art in Video Art Manual (2011), conceived as a "historical analysis" of the medium, considering conditions of production, display, and circulation by way of ironic commentary, with its deadpan narrator offering to "unfold the mysteries" of video art.
In addition to her work in film and video, Cytter has also published several books of fiction and poetry, and founded the dance company called Dance International Europe Now. The artist's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Kitchen, Kunstverein Munich, Moderna Museet, the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Hammer Museum, the Witte de With in Rotterdam, Kunst Werke in Berlin, and the Stedelijk Museum, among other venues. She has also been included in notable group shows such as Found in Translation at the Guggenheim Museum in 2011, the 8th Gwangju Biennale in 2010, the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009, The Generational: Younger Than Jesus at the New Museum in 2009, Manifesta 7 in 2008, and Television Delivers People at the Whitney Museum in 2008.
