Description

Alex-Li Tandem sells autographs. He hunts for them, collects them, sells them, occasionally fakes them - all to give the people what they want - a little piece of Fame. This is a deeply funny, existential tour around the hollow things of modernity - celebrity, cinema, and the ugly triumph of symbol over experience. Unlike his generation, Alex-Li is on his way to finding enlightenment, otherwise known as some part of himself that cannot be signed, celebrated or sold.
