13 Most Beautiful: Taylor Mead2011

Screen Tests Revisted

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 Taylor Mead, the poet and bohemian legend who died in 2013. Mead, who appears uniquely vulnerable before Ventur’s bright lights, was the main attraction in Warhol 1960s hits like TARZAN AND JANE REGAINED… SORT OF. - Max Goldberg
