Living The Dream is a video work which features the former studio of Bernat Klein designed by Peter Womersley. The building remains in private ownership and stands surplus to requirement. In spite of, or because of the decay the structure has developed an aura of timelessness, a stillness that belies its productive past. This past conjures a collision of art and capitalism, foregrounding ideas around the division of labour, the construction of femininity and the individualism of the artist. I explore the building’s structure within it’s natural site, juxtaposing 70s fashion images and imagining a future without domestication and waged labour.
