"I tried to evoke the withdrawn but upbeat atmosphere of the early 1960s, when I was becoming a teenager: one of latent aggressiveness, threat and imminent change. I made a collage with the video clip for Serge Gainsbourg’s song Les YéYé, 1962, and the interior of the house that the exiled Hungarian architect Marcel Brauer built for himself in the US. Where the Frenchman sings about Lolita and Sing Sing, Brauer adapted central European aesthetics to American high society. The overall relationship between consciousness and place has been schismatic since the Second World War."
