JUST LOVE

The macho man gets a makeover

Is it possible that strong, silent men secretly yearn to sing and dance about their feelings? Expect that to be very much the case in Jesper Just’s latest exhibition, Romantic Delusions, a series of four short noirish films in which the Danish artist imagines a world where the most macho of men are actually hopeless romantics who can’t stop themselves from breaking into song at the most unlikely moments. A highlight of the show is his 2004 work Bliss and Heaven, in which a burly truck driver pulls over to put on a platinum-blond wig and sing Olivia Newton-John. Oh, what a happier world it would be.
