  2. The Kingpins
    Spider Nanny, 2013
    Commissioned by Artbank for the series 'Performutations' curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham

    Cinematographer: Josh Raymond
    Composer: Jared Underwood
    Inflatable Engineer & Production: Marty Jay
    Makeup: Anastasia Zaravinos

    The Kingpins are collaborative group of women known for explosive performances and video works, which feature a mash up of popular culture references - fashion, music, art and sport. Active since 2000, early performances by the group parodied male stereotypes from heavy metal to hip hop. The Kingpins expand the conventions of drag from mere mimicry to encompass camp and grotesque scenarios, complete with elaborate costumes, hyper-masculine archetypes and gender roles. 'Spider Nanny' depicts an eight-legged creature - a mutant piggy bank of sorts - with a swelling pink belly that bursts glitter confetti.

  5. Hollywood Burn is an anti-copyright epic constructed entirely from hundreds of samples pirated from the Hollywood archive. It pits a righteous league of video pirates against the evil tyrant Moses and his Copyright Commandments. Determined to alter the present by changing the past, the pirates travel back to 1955 to construct the ultimate weapon: an Elvis Presley video-clone.

    Part trash cinema and part remix manifesto, Hollywood Burn adopts the tactical responses of the parasite, feeding off the body of Hollywood and inhabiting its cinematic codes. The unwitting all-star cast includes Elvis Presley, Charlton Heston, Jack Sparrow, Monkey Magic, Bette Davis, Batman, Jaws, Jesus, the Hulk, the Hoff and the Ghostbusters.

    Completed over 4 years in collaboration with artist Sam Smith, Hollywood Burn is available to view, clone, share, or screen and can be streamed or downloaded here. Or please get in touch if you'd like a hi-res screener file.
