Alfreds Hitchcocks skrekk-klassiker.
I forbindelse med Munchmuseets utstilling «Måneoppgang: Marlene Dumas & Edvard Munch» viser vi en filmserie kuratert av Marlene Dumas med filmene som har inspirert hennes kunst.
Marlene Dumas om Psycho:
The film was based on a book about a murderer called Ed Gein.
I saw this film when I was a teenager in the late 60’s in South Africa. We had strong censorship laws in those days. The film was not to be seen by people under 21 years of age. Me and my cousin being about 14 years of age, dressed ourselves with high heel shoes and with heavy make-up to get in to see it. Hitchcock did not allow his audience to walk in any time during the screening, they had to attend from the start of the film. (One should really also not allow visiters into the Moonrise show without seeing it as a whole from beginning to end!)
My painting The Kiss was inspired by the famous shower scene in the film in the Bates Hotel.
Hitchcock is a master of suggestion, you think you saw the knife stab into the body, but you did not. He makes you think you saw what you felt. My work often does that too.
As with Munch, many people see this quality in painting as ‘unfinished’.
