What Pleasure is the Feast Without the Cabbage

Title: What Pleasure Is The Feast Without The Cabbage (2022). Single channel video, 00:04:11, silent

Archived footage, a digitally animated golden cabbage and fictional text combine in this short film to create a disconcerting narrative that hinges on political notions and slang interpretations of the cabbage.

Hints of artworld hierarchies and conflated status abound in a strange landscape presided over by an all seeing brassica whose narrative explores what it means to feel a sense of inferior intellect perpetuated via inherited notions of class and how inflating the value of something humble can alter deeply held perceptions.  

Created using a mix of 3d modelling, animation and found footage the film confronts expectations of new media technology by eschewing digital perfection and embracing absurd humour.
