The Ruins first began with this sound track, written by Matuschka in the mid 80s and illustrated with photos the artist took of herself in abandoned buildings wearing or posing with a variety of plaster casts. (www.matuschka.net/FINALRuinsBWGallery.html)
Having scavenged ruins as a kid searching for stuff to resale or use, in 2006 Matuschka stumbled upon an abandoned castle in Lenox Mass. Shot by Thomas Halaczinsky, this decaying ' fortress' is used as a backdrop to showcase a wide range of artwork created by Matuschka in the 20th century. Some of the footage included in this piece was shot by the Dutch documentary film maker, Paul Cohen, for his 1992 film entitled "Part-Time God" which opened at the Dutch Film Festival that year.
The artist, who as a young woman resided in the Berkshires during the Alice Restaurant, Arlo Guthrie, James Taylor scene, now lives in Manhattan with her two pet parrots, Chester and MiniMax.
Soundtrack: THE RUINS, written by Matuschka and Dave K.
Photos and artwork, Matuschka (www.matuschka.net)
