Project Title: My Superstar

Proposal Summary: My Superstar is a single channel video restaging a found image of the artist’s Mexican grandfather. In the original photograph, an attractive mature male is seen holding a bottle of tequila ‘Herradura’ while engaging with the camera lens in an intense drunken gaze. The image is notable due to its emphasis on the alcoholic drink, which conjures the seductive atmosphere of an advertisement.
