This film still from Sue de Beer's 2006 video installation The Quickening features underground German music star Gina V. d'Orio as a sexually repressed member of New England's late-17th-century Puritans. Lying on the ground, bonnet in place, this haunting still depicts d'Orio at rest after a hysteric fit.

Splitting her time between Berlin and New York, de Beer has exhibited internationally at the New Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, the Brooklyn Museum, and Museo Reina Sofí­a in Madrid. Read Less
