"LET ME LOVE YOU"

‘LET ME LOVE YOU’ is a cri de coeur for a new body of work analysing the role of taste enforcement in culture and media. Commencing with an iconic Geraldo Rivera
episode, I trace a line to the hate-shared TikTok of Jonas Bridges miming Justin Bieber and DJ Snake’s 2016 hit ‘Let me love you’ in front of his dying grandfather, via myself as a zombie Lady Gaga. Elite taste enforcement is indicted as a fraudulent veil
drawn between talk of a better future and an insistence on an elite-dominated neoliberal status quo.
