PG: Power Generator


HD video, switchable 4 stereo soundtracks, 5 minute 46 second loop

PG: Power Generator sees an eleven-year-old girl execute the choreography of a rodeo hostess on top of a windmill. By re-performing the moves in an alternate context and with an altered energy, this young woman is generating her own power.

PG: Power Generator is part of a suite of works plotting and re-staging the gestural vocabulary of hostesses across a range of genres, periods and cultures.

It can be presented as a 2-channel installation with interactive hula hoop.
