The video LOBSTER showcases an eating situation where a lobster serves as the focal point. It symbolizes the upper class and highlights a disconnected realm in contrast to the absurd. The dining process is drawn out, governed by strict rules and etiquettes. An elaborately adorned woman takes center stage, dissecting the lobster—a metaphorical unveiling of constructed bodies.
This portrayal questions the human inclination to analyze nature and exposes the artificiality of societal constructs. With a blend of refined aesthetics and detachment, the video prompts contemplation on societal norms, the fragility of constructs, and our intricate relationship with the natural world.
