Georgina-Starr-The-Party

Single screen video installation.

Video for monitor, bar & props

Duration : 25 minutes

1995

After her amorous advances are rejected by Jerry in Visit to a Small Planet, Liz decides to go it alone and throw the most fantastic party possible. It's a party where she can wear what she wants, drink what she wants and dance how she likes, and all this is possible because there's no-one else there.....

For The Party installation the video is installed within the bar that Liz has lovingly constructed. As with many of Starr's video works (Frenchy (1996), Visit to a Small Planet (1995) and Theda (2007)) the ephemeral structures of social communication are completely stripped away and she uses the material to create a model scenario for a complex dialogue with herself.
