Obsession (1998)

2 min 15 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"I have not edited the Kate Moss 'Obsession' (1993) advertisements at all; even the soundtrack is original. I have simply overlaid the visual sequence from Fantasia's (1940) Night On Bald Mountain. The emaciated cartoon demons subtly accentuate Kate Moss’s own status as a waif. The towering devil that rises above her (and from within her) could represent a lover or demanding inner critic. Skeletons rise from their graves. What is love? Love is a word. Obsession."
