Interview with BUILDHOLLYWOOD

What is your favourite editorial/image from the series?

Jon: That’s hard, there’s something about Eloise Smyth in the ‘whistleblower’ dress holding hands with the whistle head by Esther Dillner that takes me to the opera or a 1920’s Parisian ballet, but in Tottenham. I love the repetition in the work, it runs parallel to the kick drums in my head.

Gareth: I would agree with the above and add that for me the figures are reminiscent of some kind of allegorical deities… perhaps resident in Mu Mu Land… and waiting for the KLF to arrive in an ice cream van… that with a bit of Fischli/Weiss ‘Rat and Bear’ thrown in… I kinda want to see a film of them out shopping in Lidl or trekking across a glacier…
