21ST CENTURY CASANOVA
aka A Cosplay According to Yoo Young-Cheul
2009
Video
"The video carnivalizes the common argument that men always want to destroy the objects of their desire. Here, the male desire is not directed to an object rather than the males inner perceptions about himself - the desire is subjective and something from within. Through this scenario, the video presents a situation where the subject - during the process of destroying his inner desires - always destroys something potentially real and honest about himself as well. The visual style of the video embraces the TV-movie clich├ęs, the crappiness of homemade videos and the sleaziness of sex chats. World is a bland and emotionless place that offers loads of fast impulses and affections."
