Josephine Meckseper: american apparel

While the Nottingham Contemporary building was under completion, two exhibitions were realised in the main window overlooking the Lace Market. The first, american apparel, took place 25th July  - 6th September 2009. Josephine Meckseper examined the hidden violence behind seductive consumerist fantasies cultivated by US car companies. Her mirrored installation included televisions, a factory conveyor belt, and car tyres, and featured the film 0% Down, exploring speed, power and control through a montage of adverts from US TV.
