Amanda on Top, Twins Below

Single channel video and photograph installation, 1996.  27” TV monitor and stand, 38” x 48” C-print (mounted, laminated and framed). 

Edition of one.

Amanda on Top, Twins Below stacks a still photograph of a young girl astride a horse, over an uptilted monitor with underwater footage of twins playing in a swimming pool. This piece examines the “performative” construction of gender in children as a means to examine fantasy, identity, and pleasure in the adult viewer.
