PAS DE DEUX (2011)
Winner of the 2011 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, Sydney.
This interactive work physically engages the viewer in a virtual ‘pas de deux’. It consists of a custom-made frame on wheels or trolley that shows a video of two feet walking forward and back again. The viewer is invited to manoeuvre the trolley around the exhibition space, thereby becoming a performer. Playing in an endless loop, the video brings to mind to the cautious advance and retreat, or give and take ‘dance’ involved in negotiating awkward social and personal interactions.
PAS DE DEUX was chosen by judges Dr Gene Sherman and Professor Ted Snell as the winning entry in the 2011 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. The work is now part of the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize collection and is on display at the Redleaf Council Chambers in Woollahra, Sydney.
