The House that Jacqueline Built


Digital video, stereo sound, 4 minutes 20 seconds

The House that Jacqueline Built is inspired by the artists’ ambivalent reactions and relationships to pornographic imagery and didactic hip hop videos. The work was filmed in-studio and on Sydney’s red-light district streets, then photographed via an old television set. Originally performed live with vocals, bass and drums, it has been digitised for screening and installation.
