In the first chapter of a Slavoj Zizek x Abby Lee Miller fanfic video, Abby and Slavoj meet at the annual Continental Post-Hegelian Philosophy Conference (which happens to be at the same convention centre where the Energy Candy Avocado Teen Dance Competition is being held that year). In one single glance of mystery and desire, a deep cosmic connection was made, sparks flew, and a love story of immense magnitude commenced. But their story didn’t end there, with monumental love comes monumental heartbreak…
Slabby Lee Miller (2023) is a growing accumulation of fanvids on the immaterial love story between Slavoj Zizek and Abby Lee Miller, and simultaneously an exercise in counterfactual speculation: fanfiction is employed as a method of interpretative speculation on the Real. In acknowledged misinterpretation, the series reassembles social objects (celebrities) that are extensively parasocially present in the lives of the contemporary human, and ontologically affirms the reality of these counterfactual conjunctures. An affirmation of a romantic compound that could have been.
Slabby Lee Miller (2023) is a Dance Moms (2011-2019) x continental philosophy crossover fanfiction where Slavoj Zizek and Abby Lee Miller fall in and out of love. The video was shown during Ötza, Ontologically Speaking at Mutter Amsterdam in September/October 2023.
