Squeaky Stardust


6.14 min

The installation ‘Squeaky Stardust’ (2023) features both a video work as well as a series of polaroid-like images.
A heavily made-up model can be seen slowly turning around with music playing in the background.
Reminiscent of a ballerina in a music box, she circles around and around. A female voice can be heard saying ‘smile’
and the girl complies over and over again. The camera flashes capturing her grimacing, and her makeup smears when
she tears up. The attention from the unseen photographer becomes distressing while a toy squeaks covering any
vocal expression from the protagonist.
