Simmons, William J.Interview with Amalia Ulman.” Flaunt Magazine, 2015.Abstract
Somewhere between Chris Burden and Cindy Sherman, artist Amalia Ulman is a fearless investigator of popular culture who is unafraid to use her own body as a critical tool. Her much-lauded 2014 series Excellences and Perfections involved a five-month Instagram performance wherein Ulman took on the persona of an ingénue in search of stardom—a revival, perhaps, of Naomi Watts’s character in the David Lynch classic Mulholland Drive(2001). What Ulman points to that Lynch did not is the “realities” of extreme plastic surgery culture, something that might have changed the haunting story of Betty, Diane, and Rita entirely.
