Theme Song II

Tricia Middleton and Joel Taylor

2001, 03:30 minutes, colour, English


Theme Song ii borrows its name from the seminal Acconci tape, repackaging the self-delusional banter of the Acconci piece in a formalised and much truncated version. While Acconci’s persona appeared to only want to get laid in the original, the character in Theme Song ii has different goals. Image and text combine to articulate the rampant image-based narcissism in a society ever increasingly hung up on "celebrity."
