Terry Notary's Beautiful Escape.

Anger, anxiety and happiness are embodied through Terry Notary's ape-like performance as Oleg, the monkey-imitating artist from Ruben Östlund's art-world-satire The Square.

In this film, directed by Naomi Itkes and Annika Aschberg, the character visits the exhibition The Beautiful Escape at CFHILL Art Space in Stockholm.

The film "addresses the controversial concept of self-consciousness, and what happens when the viewer sees the artwork."
