Versace: Trash Expensive
2003, 12:30 minutes, Colour, English
In Versace: Trash Expensive, a Gianni Versace fan impersonates him in a conversation with an old friend, a Berlin prostitute. The two meet for coffee at Cafe Einstein to discuss the concepts behind his work; how he sees Versace style functioning in society, the idea that he dresses wealthy woman as prostitutes and his connection to celebrities and royalty. In creating a situation which could never have taken place, this work alters our understanding of something familiar and upturns our expectations.
