Marco Brambilla, Nude Descending no. 3, 2021 (Source)

Excerpt:

At its Crosby street store in Soho, New York, Maison Margiela presents an 11-monitor video installation of Nude Descending a Staircase no. 3 by celebrated video artist Marco Brambilla. On view from now through July 6, 2021, the artwork forms a contemporary digital reinvention of Nude Descending a Staircase, no. 2 — Marcel Duchamp’s 1912 masterpiece that sought to be a static representation to movement. Combining both elements of Cubism and Futurism, the composition depicts motion by successive superimposed images. For Nude Descending a Staircase no. 3, Brambilla has reconfigured and transformed the original painting into a moving panorama, depicting multiple animated figures cascading down infinite, invisible stairs.
