A Ride in the Sky
Video and mixed media installation

A Ride in the Sky conflates Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance sequences, which invoke nostalgia for the past, with an idiosyncratic 1970s song entitled Jet by Paul McCartney and Wings, which underscores both the allure and the folly of romanticising the myth of the American Dream. This mash-up is part of a physical set or ‘stage’. It invites viewers to negotiate the line between literal and pictorial space, and to actively participate in the constructed reality of the work.
