A bittersweet taste of the simultaneous danger and innocence of advertising.
“I think it’s a fact that within consumer culture, the woman as an image is used as the interface between the consumed object and the consumer. [..] She’s at the site of that exchange between what we want and what we can get.” – Martin Crimp
Forbruker : Consumer
Forbruker places a female clown (Frankie Thompson) into the world of consumer culture. Through mime, lip-sync and general idiocy she battles her way through distinctive branding and absurdity. However, behind the illusion of harmless fun, the piece explores the role of the female body in the world of advertising and the exploitation of insecurity and loneliness to sell new products.
