Keren Cytter

Despite making award-winning work spanning filmmaking, fiction, dance and acting, and participating in the 2009 Venice Biennale, Tel Aviv-born artist Keren Cytter can’t be accused of taking herself too seriously: ”I studied art because I wanted to go to New York and wash dishes,” she says. This catalog from her 2010 show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, collects six of her film scripts, a heady mix of love stories, violence, sex and murder. Her richly human non-linear narratives are often shot with a hand-held camera; scenes are repeated with different events, voiceovers or alternative dialogs; the results are hybrid docu-soaps mixing the sensibilities of home video and French auteurism.
