New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2014 -- Marko Stout premiered his art film, “Thinner Then Ice” at the Miami Art Basel on 12/06/13. The film successfully opened to a sold out gallery audience of art collectors, dealers, celebrities, film and art enthusiasts. Art Basel is the world's premier international art show for modern and contemporary works winter meeting place for the art world populaces.
“Thinner Then Ice” is a short art style film is by the famed artist Marko Stout. This video project was designed by Stout to create an ambiguous dream-like, other-worldly atmosphere full of symbolic Jungian archetypes. The film features Andrina Nowak, a disheartened Greenwich Village waitress and art student. Andrina inquisitorially gazes out on a rainy street as an eccentric group of city residents walk pass on the adjacent gloomy wet sidewalk. The odd real- life Fellinian characters include a bizarre street clown, a man walking a goat, an irrational Romanian, an Elmo Muppet-like suited gentleman and brief cameo appearance by the artist-director himself (Marko Stout).
Marko made an interesting choice to use the word "then" as opposed to "than" in the title, this was intentionally done to situate the action in time and not comparison focused. The film is a inexplicably impressionistic and occupied with highly symbolic content, offering the viewer a bizarre examination of our reality-show, celebrity obsessed, Warholian fifteen-minute fame infatuated culture.
