Vancouver-based photographer Susan Bozic has a background in photography and cinema. Posing in elaborately staged photographs, she satirizes the fantasy of true romance by casting herself in the ingenue role and a store window mannequin as the leading man. Seemingly ignorant of her partnerís lack of engagement, the leading lady blissfully revels in her perfect life and the predicable progression of her relationship toward matrimony. Bozicís photographs make reference to advertising images designed to appeal Western women. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition includes an essay by Meghan Bissonnette.
