- UNHEARD UNREACHED UNSEEN
teenage idols & arrogant fantasies
- The first time I've been fan of someone, I didn't wanted to admit it to myself. I mean, the fanatism itself is not glorious at all, and not really original. You just have to see these hords of people disguised in the star they love. This first time, I was in a concert crowd, and I realized how one tiny tiny guy in a sparkly cropped t-shirt could unite a crowd.
Strangely, I've always been more attracted to music stars than other stars. I had the feeling, maybe wrong, that they were more honest, more direct. That's why I tried here to create music idols, five excessives characters, just waiting to be objects of a teenage fanatism. I believe idols are necessary, they welcome the instant desire.
And from idols we go to icons, because the image overrides the person, and becomes the perfect receptacle for the fantasies.
So here we are, meet my iconic characters, in music please.
- DANNY WILD
The rockabilly one. He's a poseur, a ladies man but his guitar is his only true love.
- BRIAN SPADES
The glam one. He's a girl. Or she's a boy. High pitch voice and classy make up.
- SUSY DECAY
The punk one. She has the energy of the teenage wanker. Drugs and blanks are her friends.
The pop one. She's beautiful. She's rich. She's too much. She's photoshopped.
- STEPHANE CLARK
The electro one. He's a nerd. But a talented one. He hides himself behind silver masks.
