Georgina Starr | The Joyful Mysteries of Junior | Single screen video installation | 20 minutes | 2012


Junior was conceived in a hotel room in Den Haag in 1994. She quickly became an integral part of Starr's life and a key element of her seminal multi-media work The Nine Collections of the 7th Museum (1994) . On the occasion of her 18th birthday in 2012 Junior re-emerged unexpectedly from the small green suitcase in which she had been kept for almost two decades. The Joyful Mysteries of Junior follows the artist and her diminutive alter-ego on a psycho-spiritual journey—from their lowly beginnings in a dingy Den Haag B&B (The Making of Junior) to international art exhibitions and finally their emotional reunion in 2012.
