Gimp Gait is a solo for two – surrogates to one another. It includes exploration of the subjects’ private and public lives – how the perspective of the viewer may attempt to control or shape or have some sort of power over who they are. The title of this work discloses its origin: ‘gimp’, a slur meant to mark a weak or handicapped person and ‘gait’, the manner or style of a person’s walk. The subjects do not hide these from you – do you have a good view? Can you notice every part of their bodies – both the similarities and differences? This is Marjorie, and she wants you to witness her. This is Pioneer, and he is performing Marjorie’s power.
