Lindsay Lohan is to star in the Venice Biennale art show - despite being under house arrest in Venice, California.

The Mean Girls actress - who has been fitted with an ankle monitor and is under house arrest for violating her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case - is the subject of a video by Gagosian Gallery artist Richard Phillips at the the the top contemporary art event which opens in Italy this week.

The video is "reminiscent of a '90s perfume ad", the New York Post reports, and features Lindsay, 24, on the beach, swimming in a pool in a white bikini and staring into space looking Bardot-esque with big hair, heavy eye-makeup and a black polo-neck jumper.

The short film was shot in a Malibu mansion by Taylor Steele.

Phillips said: "Lindsay has an incredible emotional and physical presence on screen that holds an existential vulnerability, while harnessing the power of the transcendental - the moment in transition.

"She is able to connect with us past all of our memory and projection, expressing our own inner eminence."

Dasha Zhukova, Alex Dellal and Neville Wakefield are hosting a fete for Commercial Break, the show that includes the Phillips' film featuring Lindsay, at the Bauer hotel on Thursday.
