Built with Berta

  1. 2 min black and white DVD video, 2004

    Playfully and naively, the video raises two main issues of human society - sex and death. In the video you see seven girls each saying three words - answer to the question "Describe London in three words". Whilst sex and death both have strong coherence, for instance, linguistic: in French, the psychoanalytic term for orgasm (la petite mort) means "the little death", also the young women's sexuality begin to relate to their own associations of London, in this case also death. The girls in the video get more and more undressed and their poses tend to signify getting closer to more and more nakedness (and openness). This can be seen as "undressing London" and showing its physical and emotional state.
