Rosemary Trockel (b. 1952)
>Walk With Me (1998)
To enter the new millenium, swedish brand Absolut Vodka chose Rosemarie Trockel as "Absolut Artist". The commissioned art work was the striptease of a bottle, a video showing a black wool thread uncloaking and re-cloaking a bottle, accompanied by a beat by Carlo Peters.
Some money and the idea by Rosemarie Trockel were left and she delegated the realization of "shooting bottles" entirely to Marc Comes. The editing followed a piece by Thomas Brinkmann: »Walk with me«. As usual with low budget productions, the clip was made in collaboration with friends and other folks willing to exploit themselves.
