Celebrity Obsession

Andrew Livingstone

Ends 08 July 2006

This project by Andrew Livingstone shows cast China Figures, a looped 30 Mins long film and photographs.
Celebrity Obsession engages the notion of the object and the collector. The cast figures are devoid of colour and finish and maintain flash marks from the mould in which they were constructed, this considers a suggestion of imperfect being. This is presented in contrast to the narrative on screen which displays the passion of the collector admiring the figures within their collections. The work makes reference to the obsession with celebrity within contemporary culture and transposes it to yet another stage.
