ANTI-HEROINE COLLAPSE GENERATOR 2011
TateShots asked artists who use music in their practice to each make a music video.
Tai Shani’s video ‘Anti-Heroine Collapse Generator’ is a dark homage to the French New Wave cinema of the 1950 and 60’s. The video and lyrics depict a tragic romance viewed from multiple perspectives. Set simultaneously as a staged drama and in a cinema, the line between viewer and actor is blurred. The “music” in Anti-Heroine Collapse Generator is in three parts, first an introduction played on an organ then a spoken word dialogue and finally an a cappella ballad.
