Magique Area 51 2008 is Jacqueline Fraser's first fabric and backlit photo installation since Superstars from Warhol to Madonna in Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna 2008. In Vienna she wallpapered the walls with French wallpaper in yellow and white stripes. An orange glow from futuristic Italian swirl lamps glowed an orange light over the backlit photo large Vogue figures.Wigs and haute couture fabrics stitched to the photos of the langorous men and women bitching at each other anout being Fabulous.A giant pet bear, elegant white circus ponies all posing.
Now she's swathed the wall in layers of black and white bridal tulle to make a magic theatre. This time the large backlit photos are pinned onto and under the tulle in a floating collage of UFOs and secret unmanned predator drones. A little fighting pit bull with it's gamma ray protruding. A Hugo Boss man with a metal plated alien mask transplanted and lounging bikini women beaming out their electric surveillance data.
She's entering that hidden zone between night and day. The crack's opened up and those gorgeous fashionistas are morphing into their true identy.ETs cunningly disguised in Dolce & Gabbana. Their crafts are hovering ,swirling dust in the Nevada desert.Area 51.A masked sniper guards in the shadows.
