AND WHAT ABOUT GO FOR WAND ?


Black & White Video / Archival Footage / Sound, 5 min - 2016

The video work "And What About Go For Wand ?", is a short video work composed of different archival footage, dialogs and material based on a historical account of the former champion filly Go For Wand in the highly coveted 1 million dollar race world champion competition, The Breeders Cup Distaff in 1990. The horse is embodied as an individualized champion through both tragedy and greatness via her breeding pedigree that manifests from economic value through the social stratification of wealth in the sport thoroughbred racing.

As the horse becomes an emblem of social status, beauty, class and strength the animal is also personified in a western post-modern gaze within this heroic position in the sport, creating a mysticism and narrative that is met with Greek tragedy at the pinnacle of her glory and potential success in what becomes a defining moment in the history of American horse racing. The value of her never ending and fleeting existence is only possible as her champion status was met with a premature tragic fate, embedding her into the history of greatness where other athletes are all but forgotten as they fail to deliver and perform a winner's walk down a hall of fame.
