Private collector


Private Dancer is a video work created by Stuart Semple in 2016.

The piece takes it's inspiration from the song 'Private Dancer' by Tina Turner and combines vintage karaoke machine footage with that of an older woman on a roller-coaster.

The piece was originally presented as part of Semple's exhibition 'Love me Till My Heart Stops' which tackled ideas of love and aging through the use of conflicting mass-media appropriations.

The deliberate low-fi nature of the piece stands to distance the viewer from the resultant work and emphasizes the critical nature of the piece in reference to it's original source material.
