Manual Of Arms (2014)

5 min 23 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"'Manual of Arms' is a video project of a choreographed 'performance', that recalls a drill team routine or band auxiliary performance. Questions are raised in the work about the nature of the rituals that surround North American sports culture and the highly gendered roles that have developed in these; as well as the ubiquitous presence of guns in this culture."
