Self Esteem 'The Best' by Piers Dennis
Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka Self Esteem, gives a great performance of The Best in an intriguing setting - among the artworks of the Proudick exhibition that ran in London from November to January.
The Proudick show was a collaboration between artists Paloma Proudfoot and Lindsey Mendick, and Taylor also took part in a performance evening at the show in November, which culminated in a hot dog-eating contest. Piers Dennis directs her around the art pieces, starting and finishing in one of the twin beds in the show inspired by Tracy Emin.
I couldn’t tell if the space had been created for the song, or the song for the space.
"Walking into the Proudick show is like walking into a fantastical visual version of The Best. The vibrant surface colours quickly giving way to much more interesting themes. Materials and objects we know and associate with simpler, happier things - twisted and repurposed to reflect things much deeper and darker.
"I couldn’t tell if the space had been created for the song, or the song for the space. I want this video to do the same."
