Fellini's SirenAbout this photograph
Rie Rasmussen appears to delight in her image as ?femme fatale.? As a visual artist she questions how women are depicted in art, whilst at the same time being provocative herself. She poses in an autobiography where fantasy and reality blend together. She recalls desired and wilful women in a mirage. Rie Rasmussen changes the boundaries: both demiurge and model she invents a new iconography devoted to women.Read more Read less

Born in Copenhagen in 1978, Rie Rasmussen grew up in a family of nine children. She left at the age of 15, to go to New York, where she quickly became the symbolic face of the brands Victoriaâ€™s Secret and Gucci. Alongside modelling, she began a career in cinema, making her first appearance on the big screen in 2002, in Brian De Palmaâ€™s ' Femme Fatale ', before going behind the camera to make the short film ' Thinning the Herd ' presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004, and produced by Luc Bessonâ€™s company, EuropaCorp. The film director-producer discovered a new muse in her, since he made her the female star ' Angel - A ' alongside Jamel Debbouze, before producing his first feature length film, Human Zoo, where she also had the leading role.www.rierasmussen.net
