Video Art, video work
Project type: 1. Projekt
The single channel video STICK IT combines television footage of women's gymnastics with recordings of myself attempting the same routines. Merging myself and the young gymnasts of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta into one composite character, I enter an ambivalent position between envy, identification, rejection and critique of these highly controlled bodies and their restricted performative roles. The video follows the preparation and execution of a floor routine, suspending the marginal moment right before the action, encapsulating ambition, the pressure to succeed and the looming possibility of failure.
