Jacqueline Fraser is a contemporary New Zealand artist whose work features immersive installations that draw from an array of visual sources such as fashion shows, magazines, music videos and movies.

In Jacqueline Fraser’s ongoing series of works THE MAKING OF…, she proposes fictional remakes of arthouse and Hollywood films. In these, the premise and visual language of a select film is dismantled and reimagined. Fraser re-directs its visual language: by using discarded fabric, torn magazines, party paraphernalia, plastics, veneers, tinsels, overlapping soundtracks and projections, she re-casts, re-scores, and re-costumes the cinematic template as a deconstructed storyboard. Her work THE MAKING OF BLACK PANTHER 2021 works from this premise, constructing an expanded storyboard of the 2018 superhero film Black Panther. In doing so, Fraser draws on signifiers that range in reference—noting fashion, adornment, race, media image, and representation—creating an alternative representation of the film and the media that surround it. Her edition for the Kunstverein draws from her larger installation of the same name, reproducing a collage featuring overlapping images torn from fashion magazines picturing rapper Young Thug, a young male model, and a ghostly masked figure.
