It isn’t often that celebrities pose as subjects for artists—until now. South African artist Candice Breitz has casted film stars Alec Baldwin and Julianne Moore in her latest video art piece called Love Story, which opens on February 1 at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa. The seven-channel installation, which first debuted at the Venice Biennale, tells the personal stories of refugees who explain their tumultuous journey from their home countries into safety. As actors, Baldwin tells the story of one refugee, who was arrested in Cairo and escaped by boat to Italy, while Moore tells the story of another, who fled from the Democratic Republic of Congo. It’s an eerie mix seeing Hollywood actors tell spine-chilling, real life tales, but through their spotlight, the stories are shared.
