Little Dirty Us
Edition of 4 and 2 Artists Proofs
Little Dirty Us indulges the interpersonal relations of a young man and the woman he loves as they navigate their discrete desires under the veil of heteropatriarchal culture. A Meissen Madonna greats the viewer, issuing the contemporary manifestation of a fertility goddess of the Paleolithic era as a vortex of capitalist propaganda suggests a digital womb. The conception of the male protagonist’s love engenders an entitled sense of control, but while he is at the terminal with a ring, she is far away having the fun he craves. The Entertainer doesn’t wish to sell her love, even if he would gladly make an offer. This work alludes to the intricate relationship between mother and child – the mother as the entertainer that keeps the child peaceful and content, and the child as the clown that makes the mother happy through his learned developmental performances.
