Full of longing for a return to the safety, the ease, the pretends of childhood, The Lollipop Girls Struggle on the Hard Earth reminds us that Fantasy organizes our experience of everyday reality and tells us who we are.

Employing the visual language of ready-to-wear (fashion) film, a woman finds herself, by choice, in a perfected world, reminiscent of classic childhood literature. Satisfactions abound. But the rules of Desire apply.

Equating personal longing and its rich satisfaction with effective advertising, The Lollipop Girls Struggle on the Hard Earth is about the memory of the missing thing (Desire). Whether the singsong of a storybook or commercial seduction, what Fantasy holds behind the veil is subject in abstentum.
