"Chase me! Mate with me! Seduce me! yells Isabella Rossellini dressed
in red spandex and bug eyes. Hes so strong and sharp, he doesnt
need a vagina at all. He ejaculates in my wound. The Lynchian actress
is reenacting the mating ritual of bedbugs. As if the little bastards
werent gross enough, just imagine them in your sheets stabbing each
other with their little dagger penises the females crawling away
bleeding, the males high-fiving. The video is one of five shorts in
Seduce Me, the miniseries follow-up to Green Porno, in which she
dramatizes the seduction between salmon, cuttlefish, snakes, and
ducks. The actress is the writer, director, and performer of the
series, and shes coming to Miami in what may be one of the coolest
cameos of Art Basel.
Shell appear at the Wolfsonian (1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach)
for the opening reception of Seduce Me, the shorts and a site-
specific installation that features the elaborate paper sculptures
used in Rossellinis latest miniseries of animal porn. When it opens
this Wednesday, attend The Arts of Seduction featuring Mondavi
wines, dinner, and an auction with Rossellini-designed handbags.
Seduce Me will be up until December 5, and the museum is open
Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. and until 9 p.m. Fridays.
Admission costs $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students, and kids; and
is free for members. Call 305-531-1001, or visit wolfsonian.org.
