Fashion Fetish Season: 'Dollywood' x Liberty Ross

As part of SHOWstudio's Fashion Fetish season which explores the dichotomy of fashion and fetishism via film and multi-media performances - Liberty Ross and photographer Polly Borland present 'Dollywood', a presentation which tackles the key themes of fetishism such as dress-up, bondage and child's play, also exploring the taboos surrounding them.

Inspired by her current series of artworks, Borland explains, "
Our film is a fusion of and continuation of my new body of work and the artistic and emotional preoccupations of Liberty".

Ross's participation in the short was based on making "a film that blurred the line of primitive sexual fetishism with naive and childlike play. To me the act of dressing up, tying up and fetishism has its primal urges in childhood."

Other contributors in the Fashion Fetish season include Ruth Hogben, Daphne Guinness, Asia Argento and Dasha Zhukova. For more info, head HERE.
