DISCO PROJECT [1991-1993]

The project challenges the ahistorical notion that the discotheque was merely a space for ‘leisure activity’ by positing it also as a significant historical and cultural place created as an expression of contemporary urban gay identity. It retraces an autobiographical trajectory back to a pre-AIDS period in order to mourn a generation of gay men—the 'disco generation'—who were on the frontline of first wave of the epidemic.


The project consists of the following discrete works:


  • I NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE  [1991] Public art project - billboard (3m x 7m) 

  • TELL ME WHY [1991] Time-based media installation – audio / photography (Dimensions: variable)

  • (TELL ME WHY) THE EPISTEMOLOGY OF DISCO [1990] Single-channel video (24 mins)

  • COMING OF AGE [1991] Published artist project - offset

  • SEXUALITY & ITS DISCOTHEQUES [1994] - Published text
