During this presentation we show the legendary Outer and Inner Space by Andy Warhol in its original form, this means with two 16mm projectors and two screens. This epic work contains all the Warholian artistic elements: fame, the portrait, repetion, the reproduction of images... intertwined with Warhol's film work, which turns this film into a selfconscious performance, a homemade Warhol superstar that thus provides commentary on the star system itself. Edie Sedgwick sits next to a monitor that plays a video of her head, while she talks to herself. Every projection shows these two images, which means Sedgwick's portrait is visible four times while she discusses with herself. The work therefore doesn't just concern with reality en representation, but also the medium 'video and film' en reproduction. Just like in his paintings and silkprints, where an existing image is re-framed, Warhol films the monitor with Sedgwick's portrait. Starting with this iconic work, we direct our attention to film makers who have used this technique later on and are active on the thin line between visual art and film.
