Angelo Musco Studio releases “The Land of Scars” film for one night only
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, April 27th, 2022 – Contemporary Artist Angelo Musco sits in the director’s seat for the first time capturing in intimate detail the four-year-long production of the artwork entitled The Land of Scars, premiering in an exclusive one-night-only showing on April 27th, 2022 at 7 pm in SVA Theatre. Musco is best known for his photographic manipulation of thousands of nude bodies.
After the completion of his previous work, Aaru in 2018 Musco found himself in a dark place and was compelled to travel West and then Internationally, exploring and looking back at the faces and memories of the people who have left their mark on his life. Through his artwork and subsequent film of the same name, The Land of Scars, Musco shares his past with his most autobiographical work to date.
Ex-lovers, friends, and family, were invited to pose for this intimate work, together with followers, fans, and past models. This work puts the attention on the real markers in everyone’s life, with faces, eyes, and expressions, immortalizing on paper what is already imprinted in the emotional soul. Early in the process, Musco decided it was necessary for the first time to include his own body, step in front of the camera, shed his own clothes, and show not only the scars of his birth but that of a freak accident that broke his right Humerus bone in 2018.
The resulting art piece captured in this film is a stunning 40’ long by 12’ high piece depicting an immense rock landscape formed from the bodies of all who graciously joined.
Angelo Musco invites all to share in the excitement of this work’s debut. Join us for this one-night-only event or please consider buying tickets for donation to the students at the School of Visual Arts (SVA). All sales and donations go towards not only this screening but the production of this film which has been self-produced.
