Ladies, There's a Space You Can't Go

Laura Parnes

1995, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


The video Ladies, There is a Space You Can't Go is a both a deconstruction and a distortion of an episode of Sally Jesse Raphael titled My Daughter Dresses Like A Hooker. Sampled audience statements and a driving dance beat merge with distorted talk show participants to form a self-mutilating music video. The daughters "exhibited" walk through the audience as if it were a runway. These mutated models perform for a disturbed mob of angry woman who relentlessly attack with threats of rape and diets.

Single-channel Video installation, Mixed media.
