What A Feeling!

Video installation, 3 minutes 30 seconds duration

In a field close to a refinery with chimney stacks divulging a steady stream of smoke,

Horrigan is seen glibly re-enacting dance scenes from the 1983 movie Flashdance,

where a heroine works in Pittsburgh’s mills while at night pursues her real dream of dancing.

The gesture acts as a sensibility borne out of the disaffection of the individual against

global flow and capital, and questions the role of the personal in relationship to the

pervasiveness of industrialised manufacturing.
