Paige explores the concept of fraternal relationships and resuscitated texts that incorporates performance, and video, the work title is derived from a commonly used quote by US college fraternity houses.Through a process of repetition and evolution, a piece of twenty five year old, illicit cultural artefact on the brink of historical and cultural obsolescence is reinterpreted and re-presented to produce a new work.
This continues the artists exploration of the intersection of biography and late twentieth century learnt culture from West Coast, USA. Here investigating the possibility of re-performance and re-articulation of a text through the use of video and a performance of a short section of script, appropriated from the opening scene from a 1980’s gay adult movie 'In Hot Pursuit'. Through this re-iterative process and by re-contextualising the purpose, place and form of the original, Paige unpicks the masculine, it's construction and how this becomes a motif or modus operandi in fraternal dealings, continuing an ongoing exploration of the intersections between biography and late twentieth century popular culture.
