Bryce Galloway

Sadie Wrestling 2 (2008)

3 min 30 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Sadie Wrestling showed Galloway in a mock wrestling bout with his 6-month old daughter Sadie. Sadie Wrestling 2 repeats the exercise every 6-months through Sadie’s first few years.

Galloway pictures his daughter growing up in this most absurd of contexts. Riffing on the same politically incorrect issues that informed Sadie Wrestling, the sequel’s longevity also adds some metaphorical weight to what a parent daughter relationship might entail.
