The Story of Tommy Cash in 5 Videos

How the Es­to­nian ec­cen­tric built a post­mod­ern mythos

Q (UK) - - Tommy Cash -

EUROZ DOLLAZ YENIZ (2014)

A Rus­sian gangsta fan­tasy back­drops this satire of money-ob­sessed com­mer­cial art. Toss­ing bills in the air, he shows off his spoils: ba­bies, chick­ens, guns. What does it mat­ter when you’re rich?

LEAVE ME ALONE (2015)

Cash jux­ta­poses lux­ury with Es­to­nia’s work­ing-class re­al­ity, bathing out­doors in a re­mote slum as an el­derly lady peels his pota­toes and, jar­ringly, pol­ishes a gleam­ing tro­phy col­lec­tion.

WI­NALOTO (2016)

In­spired by Re­nais­sance paint­ings – though you might not guess it – this car­ni­val of ex­posed skin ce­mented Cash’s in­famy as an out­cast, highly meme-able prankster.

SURF (2017)

Full of phal­lic cham­pagne ex­plo­sions and women blast­ing hairdry­ers up their skirts, Cash weaves a string of vis­ual in­nu­en­does il­lus­trat­ing a world where ev­ery­thing points to sex.

PUSSY MONEY WEED (2018)

Aside from his un­com­fort­able scenes danc­ing in a wheel­chair, Cash per­fectly re­alises a Jodor­owskian vi­sion of per­form­ers with dif­fer­ent body abil­i­ties pop­u­lat­ing a street-dance utopia.
