Barbie Doll

Judy Cheung

1993, 02:30 minutes, colour, English


A video documentation on a series of still photographs projecting only partial images of a Brooklyn cashier along with the products in the store. The juxtaposition between the "Barbie Doll" look and the products themselves creates the question regarding the role of a contemporary female. Is she merely a product created by mass culture or does she, in fact, represent the "natural" maternal icon?
