Video Is The Only Constant April 7th 2010: Paul Kindersley
'Star' consists of hand made screenprinted cushions of a random womans face, the way it is done and the Warhol references make her look like a famous person allowing each viewer to have their own interpretation...is it Yoko Ono, is it Sharon Tate Etc....It shows the stalker, obsessive nature of fandom, and the saturation of popular culture in our lives. What we see on the cinema screen, becomes part of us, and we can no longer separate between reality and fantasy. The 'star' becomes an empty vessel for us to project our fantasies onto.
