Zoe Williams & Amy Gwatkin

Sunday Fantasy

2019 | 31''

Sunday Fantasy plays with dissecting current representations of the erotic through a female lens, in relation to notions of hedonism, role-play and the grotesque. The film follows a fragmented, dreamlike narrative centred around the character Veronica Malaise, played by 4 interchangeable women. Challenging the idea of singular authorship, Williams and Gwatkin worked with their friends and collaborators, artists Deniz Ünal and Nadja Voorham on the construction of the film, inviting them to enact their own and each other’s fantasies within it. The film is set to a specially composed soundtrack by musician David Aird. Sunday Fantasy was first shown as part of William’s solo exhibition, also titled Sunday Fantasy at Mimosa House Gallery, London in May 2019.
