Lindsay Lohan stars in art exhibit

Lindsay Lohan has returned to the big screen following her recent series of legal woes - she stars in a 90-second exhibit for an art event.

The Mean Girls actress is struggling to get her career back on track after a tumultous few years.

And her first screen appearance since her troubles earlier this month (May11) comes in a short film shot for an art event in Italy.

Artist Richard Phillips designed the clip, titled simply "Lindsay Lohan", as a comment on how a celebrity's public image can be shaped by media reports.

In the film, the actress is seen swimming underwater in a skimpy white bikini, pouting at the camera while wearing a black jumper, and attempting to touch an image of herself on a giant screen.

It will be shown as part of the Commercial Break event at the opening of Venice Biennale in Italy next month (Jun11).
