Yeah! presents a dialogue between two opposing performances, both of which could be considered to be sculptural objects: Two performers engaged in a simple, repetitive and ultimately dull dialogue, and a large, conspicuous covered object at the other side of the space.
Underneath the object’s cloth is a cage (1 x 1 x 1.9m.) Inside the cage is The Biggotz (dimensions variable, materials varied, though mostly organic). The Biggotz are a distillation of everything a rock band is or should be, and can only play one song – Yeah! which at just over one minute in length is likewise a distillation of everything that a rock song should be. The cage cover is removed once, disrupting the dialogue for one minute.
The cage decorates the dialogue – it is the more aesthetically interesting of the two, though has no significant content, and at the same time is subservient to it due to the spatial and temporal composition; it is a blip of glitter amongst a beige surface.
The work ultimately becomes an investigation of, or focus on audience attention, expectation and response; their attention being constantly redirected back and forth between the two objects through an interplay of attraction and repulsion. After precisely one minute of The Biggotz playing, and the two performers frantically pogoing, the cover is replaced, the music stops, and the dialogue returns.
