The video Parade (2018) came about when I attempted to emulate an image of North Korean marching women soldiers, wielding guns and lifting skirts in big boots. My slightly clumsy version of their act mixes authority and fragility. It was recorded on a strangely barren man-made landscape, enhanced by an eerie or melancholic piano tune, and slow motion.
