Cool Cool Water

Spec & Synopsis

Date: 2002

Format: Video triptych
Duration: 3 x 3.50 minutes

Cool Cool Water investigates and plays with media representation of women; the inherent sexual connotations and exaggerated notions of desire, fantasy and glamour.

The work focuses specifically on ‘the wet look’ as it attempts to relocate these ideals into the everyday, to push the boundaries of seduction and to expose the farcical nature of elegance. In this way, a dichotomy is presented between the real and the fantastical.
