Daddy’s little helper
BY
Cecilia Lundqvist

Daddy’s Little Helper is a story about indifference and moral decay. The video is a reflection of a person who lacks both courage and compassion, when it comes to both small and large issues. The boundary between right and wrong is erased. The woman in the video tries to justify her actions, and a sense of guilt shines through, but it is still not enough to change her behavior. This leads to self-harm, an attempt to diminish her feeling of discomfort.

About the artist

Cecilia Lundqvist

She manages to treat difficult subjects, often from a personal, feminist perspective with a sharp sense of humour.

Cecilia’s video works are shown frequently worldwide and has received recognition in the art and film world alike. Her work is generally narrative and deal with issues like domestic violence, power structures and human behaviour.

She is represented with video works at several art institutions, among them Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Educated at Royal Collage of Art, Video Department and University Collage of Arts, Crafts & Design, Art Department, Stockholm, Sweden.
