"What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This?"*
About the author: Clementine Barnes. Artist, beach-lover, cinephile, cyclist. My artistic practice investigates relationships between gender, space, high and low forms of art. I use various methods and materials to draw attention to gender-specific roles and rituals. Not surprisingly, this has influenced my Art Set! Sherman's various personas take their cues from the celluloid image, particularly B-grade movies and Film Noir. To what extent do you think the mediated image shapes and informs our perception of the female identity?
The glance, the gaze.
Given all the unhygienic behavior that will soon take place here, disinfecting everything in sight seems like a necessary precaution. First up with the primping is the awesome and hilarious performance-art exhibit known as Nick Rhodes. Nick looks fantastic here, with two-tone hair fiery red in front, jet black in back and flawless makeup. And here we have John, in the process of getting his beautiful, beautiful face touched up. This is pretty much the textbook definition of gilding a lily. There is no shot of shy, enigmatic Roger primping, which comes as no surprise. Roger probably does his fair share of primping. The iconic Duran Duran headbands make a triumphant debut in this video! Simon wears his trademark white one, while Nick sports a leopard-print one during the performance scenes.
The band personally selected the song for release following the failure of its predecessor, " Careless Memories ", which had been chosen by their record company, EMI. Its popularity provided a major boost to sales of the band's eponymous debut album, Duran Duran , which had been released a month earlier. The song did not chart in the United States on its initial release, but it became popular and widely known after receiving heavy airplay on MTV when the Duran Duran album was re-issued in The song was used as the opening theme song for the anime series Speed Grapher in the Japanese language version the song wasn't able to be licensed for releases outside of Japan , and the night version appeared on Square Enix video game Sleeping Dogs. The song begins with a recording of the rapid whirring of a motor drive on a camera. Both, manager Paul Berrow and photographer Andy Earl claim to have supplied the camera for the recording. Over the years, "Girls on Film" has become a staple of the encores for Duran Duran's live performances and is often the final song of a concert, during which lead singer Simon Le Bon introduces the rest of the band. The song, along with " Rio ", was originally omitted from the live album Arena to make room for newer and less familiar album material from 's Seven and the Ragged Tiger. Both tracks were included as bonus material in the CD reissue of Arena.
