Come Die With Me
Wax figures

“If you could have anyone living or dead at your fantasy dinner party who would you have “

In this piece I invite you to come and join the diners at the table. You sit beside Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, and Princess Dianna at this uncanny dinner party. You are transported into the fantasy vision of an obsessive fan.

You hear, as though from the grave ,their haunting conversation discussing the isolation and pressures of fame. Incorporating themes of consumption at this dinner table, I ask the question did their fans consume these celebrities? Were they subjected to so much expectation and adoration it ultimately killed them?
