Milla Jovovich proves that models in glass houses shouldn't throw paintings
The actress has become a live-action artwork at the Venice Biennale. Join the club...
Milla Jovovich, the actress whose body of work includes Zoolander and six Resident Evil flicks, took part in something a little more highbrow by appearing in some performance art at the 55th Venice Biennale, which also features work by Ai Weiwei and Jeremy Deller.
Starring in an installation by Tara Subkoff titled "Future/Perfect", the model appeared in a giant glass box; she could only reach the outside world by using technology, and filled her empty abode by ordering boxes of goods and garments that dropped from the roof until she was almost buried alive by her greedy consumerism. Deep stuff, indeed.
But news of the project must have irked that other actress with a fondness for inhabiting a glass box in the name of art, Tilda Swinton. And it's safe to assume David Blaine is feeling a bit cheesed off, too.
