"Sexy, shiny, touch-me hair... It's the hair you want... It won't happen overnight but it will happen... Pump up the volume... Thicker, fuller... Heads or Tails?..."
Linda Erceg's Softstyler is a digital video installation which investigates the sexually charged zones of fantasy, child's play, toys and dolls. Looped video images merge in and out of focus as they recreate the obsessive act of hair brushing, highlighting the ambivalent forms of fetishism that can accompany such ritualised forms of grooming.
