Demon Girl Duet

Media: video projection, stereo audio track
Dimensions: variable
Duration: 07:46 loop

Demon Girl Duet presents a sonic-video duet in the form of a single-channel video projection,
juxtaposing and interweaving two separate but simultaneous journeys on rivers of mythic
proportions. One journey leads us toward the sea down the Chang Jiang (Yangtze), China’s
principle waterway, and the other takes us inland up the Niagara, which spans a 35-mile stretch
of the border between Canada and the United States. Each journey is led by the same ‘tour
guide’ in the form of an elusive, phantasmagorical swimmer who sings haunting siren songs of
warning about the ecological and social consequences of controlling nature and human
populations by imposing rational order and insatiable development.
