FEMME FATALE

My ‘Femme Fatale’ portfolio has its roots in the shadows and violence depicted on pulp fiction book covers and film noir movie posters. At the core of these stories is an edgy morality tale, with temptation dripping from the shocking images. ‘Bad girl’ characters live in a place and time where good is not always rewarded or evil inevitably punished. Central to this story is the predatory femme fatale, sometimes portrayed as a character that is not all bad.

Within the mysterious mise-en-scène, gender performance artist, Fréd Koenig, appropriates the dark haired, noir-heroine dripping in furs and jewels as a character of multiple and hidden  identities. The inner surface and the outer show are as interchangeable as the intimately linked masculine and feminine roles. For the femme fatale, sex is her weapon and she uses her attractiveness to manipulate, threaten and destroy the male protagonist. The warning is well learned by generations of young girls. Better not to be too pretty, too aggressive or too sexual or you might be killed as the film noir heroine usually dies.  The film noir moral lesson is that we are all connected; that the lure of transgression makes us closer than we think.
