Vogue is a series of digital audiovisual collages created by Swiss artist Esther Hunziker, who combines images from fashion magazine covers with short sequences depicting aliens, monsters and humanoids in horror or science fiction movies. The animations surprise because of their peculiar aesthetics that combines images usually associated with beauty, sensuality and elegance with video sequences.
These are supposed to be frightening and unsettling but are nonetheless the products of a large entertainment industry. The resulting moving collages are witty and cleverly done. In a humorous manner, they question and subvert the mechanics of seduction of the fashion and of the entertainment industry. – Text by HEK, Haus der Elektronischen Künste
Vogue was originally created as an online work in 2014. The revised eBook version contains new creatures and audio.
