Cat Power appears in MoMa project

Chan Marshall’s daily life documented for art

Cat Power is currently appearing as a subject in a giant movie project taking place in New York City until mid-February.

Artist Doug Aiken filmed the star, real name Chan Marshall, and a host of other New Yorkers for ‘Sleepwalkers’, a movie showing five characters going about their daily tasks in the city including showering, commuting and performing.

The movie is currently being screened nightly at the exterior of the Museum Of Modern Art in New York, via a 30 feet tall projection. Eight continuous sequences of film scenes will be projected onto six facades.


The project was filmed in the five boroughs of the city, and features

Donald Sutherland, Tilda Swinton, Seu Jorge as well as Marshall.

It will be shown daily from 5pm to 10pm until February 12.
