Sue de Beer

Much in the way Jeffrey Eugenides did in his novel The Virgin Suicides, Sue de Beer's films aim to explore the lives of "disaffected suburban American teenagers." Often blurring the lines between the real and the imagined in her films, de Beer inserts her subjects into highly stylized, theatrical scenarios that stand in stark contrast to the raw, complicated emotions that grip their psyches.

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.
