HOUSE OF WAX comments on reproduction and re-appropriation. I am re-appropriating horror films that have either been remade or were heavily influenced by other films. The images focus on themes of the uncanny (castration, double, involuntary repetition and animistic conceptions of the universe). I believe occurrences of the uncanny increase in the age of mechanical reproduction, as any new work is unwittingly a reference to something that’s already been created. I am taking inspiration from these films and re-appropriating them into tableau fashion photos.
