My Expensive Baby

By  Romy & Maxim Northover


My Expensive Baby, Romy and Maxim Northover's take on the theme "$", displays two stylised protagonists, one male and one female, who pose and perform within a luxury boutique.

Utilising an opulent location the visuals are a culmination of consumerism saturated with exhibitions of status and wealth. The notion of the self as an investment via aspirational dressing and behaving is explored.

Compressed into a single take is a representation of a lifestyle based on wealth and the craving for possession of both objects and other people. The displays of luxury and wealth are exposed as absurd and ultimately unfulfilling.
