LE PLASTIQUE C'EST FANTASTIQUE
In this very early film — the artist made it while she was still studying at Sint-Lukas in Brussels — Karen Vanderborght deliberately plays with lo-fi aesthetics, abstraction and blurred focus. Though her editing is inspired by free association, in this work the focus is on the naked body. Staged images of a girl wrapped in plastic alternate with footage of television newscasts, music videos and projections onto bodies. The work abounds with implicit and explicit references to sex and sexuality, gender issues and social taboos.
