Sarah Jane Parton

Slowdance '92 (2004)

33 min 22 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"...Parton’s video... depicts the artist, crutches by her side, left dance partner-less amongst the otherwise empty seats in a corner of the hall at a school disco, balloons and the flecks of the mirror ball playing over her desolation. Perfectly pitched, I very much like how Parton’s work doesn’t shy from playing out time or hinting at a narrative happening both here and elsewhere."
