Full of longing for a
return to the safety, the ease, the pretends of childhood,The Lollipop Girls
Struggle on the Hard Earthreminds 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
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.
