The Ultimate Front Figure is a concept working with the oxymoron of creating a super star that is absolutely unique but at the same time can be loved and liked by everyone. The U.F.F. was developed inside FAN-MANIA a cycle focusing on pop culture and mass hysteria initiated together with artist Clélia Colonna (FR/AT). The work was developed inside video for web, installation, performative and discursive contexts and dealt with social media, re-enactments and contexts where social codes are twisted. As part of “FAN-MANIA” the artists also founded the fictive cover band JUNK FREAK & FRIENDS ORCHESTRA.
Below the online-trailer with instructions of how to audition to become the Ultimate Front Figure. For watching an example of stage work developed inside Fan-Mania see The Laboratory
