Liss LaFleur: You Belong to Me

Audio/video installation

‘You Belong to Me’ is a looped audio and video installation that androgenizes Doo-Wop by projecting a young woman lip synching through five curtains of pink fringe that hang from above. The vacillating distortion of the singer’s body on the shiny material produces an uncanny, Lynchian effect that mirrors the strangeness of the altered, seemingly disembodied voice.

Liss LaFleur is a New Media artist currently working out of Texas. She is known for creating works that are feminist and feminine, exploring personal identities and relationships around themes of domesticity, loss, and historic parallelism. Using both abstract and representational forms of narrative, she embraces storytelling to articulate the politics of difference.
