Original title: Bom Bom’s Dream

Created in collaboration with Jeremy Deller, Bom Bom’s Dream follows the fantastic adventures of Japanese dancer Bom Bom as she travels to Jamaica to compete in a local dancehall contest. A children’s book illustrator by trade, Bom Bom lives a fantasy life when she’s in Jamaica. The video features extremely raw footage of Bom Bom and her dancehall opponents rolling around in the dusty yard of a shopping center as Bombom, with her gymnastic moves out-dances the competition to come out on top. Her prize? An electric fan. This piece is a surreal highlight from Hayward Gallery’s off-site exhibition The Infinite Mixmade in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory.
