In Sweet Dreams Angela takes images of celebrities that have been alleged or convicted of sexual assaults out of their original context – i.e. their field of celebration – and transfers them into a context of our daily lives by abstracting the portraits into stylish designs printed on common everyday objects. This re-contextualization receives an even more troubling level when the viewer (aka user of the objects) becomes aware of the connection between the specific sexual assaults and objects employed.
