13 Most Beautiful: Billy Name2011

Screen Tests Revisted

  • 2.0
Forty-five years after Andy Warhol’s seminal SCREEN TESTS, New York artist Conrad Ventur gathered together thirteen beautiful people from the Factory demimonde to recreate their earlier portraits. The new films follow Warhol’s minimalist design both in terms of framing and duration (a three minute shot projected back at a slightly slower speed), though the sense of “passing time” now registers in terms of decades rather than minutes. This installment features Billy Name, an indispensable Warhol accomplice responsible for “silverizing” the Factory and documenting its activities (and the “Billy” repeatedly referenced in the Velvet Underground’s “That’s the Story of My Life”). - Max Goldberg
