The Swing

A performance to camera of Tina Keane swinging. An image of ‘she’ from girlhood to womanhood. Based on a performance at the Serpentine Gallery in the same year, the motion of the swing sets a tempo for a repeating image that gradually transforms over time. Utilising the self-reflexive quality of new video technology, the work reflects a feminist idea of radical change in which the image of ‘she’ or ‘her’ needs also to be radically altered.
