Amie Siegel


In the apartment of the Gallery-Legacy Čolaković, Amie Siegel has created a viewing environment for watching a scene from Adrian Lyne’s 9 ½ Weeks (1986), an erotic drama in which Kim Basinger stars as a SoHo art gallery employee who begins a torrid affair with a dominating character played by Mickey Rourke. In a scene from its sequel, Anne Goursaud’s Another 9 ½ Weeks (1997), shown in the gallery’s bookstore, Rourke is at an auction, attempting to purchase artworks from his former lover’s collection.
