The Plains of Sweet Regret

. . . the work explodes into dance, the dance of the bucking horse, the bull, the clown, the rodeo rider. This is the resplendent West, but Lucier undermines its glory with loss. Brilliantly, the artist sets her choreography to George Straits country western song, I Can Still Make Cheyenne. The music and the images cascade back over themselves, folding, repositioning, repeating, alive . . .

Mary Lucier is known for making complex and provocative multi-media video installations. Her works are among the first video pieces to be collected by major museums including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. A forthcoming book on her work, Lost Objects of Desire: Video Installation, Mary Lucier, and The Romance of History, by Melinda Barlow, is soon to be published by the University of Minnesota Press.
