tieČesto na mojim profilima po raznim Date sajtovima napišem: Neko da goli popijemo kafu?
Čudno za većinu pedera –  zove na kafu i još goli, a ne na seks. Mnogi odmah preskoče profil i vjerovatno pomisle “Još jedan čudak na sajtu!”
Neznam šta vi mislite o ideji da goli u društvu pijete piće, pričate,eventualno gledate porniće i palite se, a da pri svemu tome seks nije glavna stvar,ali meni je to u većini bolje i prihvatljivije nego sa nekim koga “poznajete” desetak minuta odmah završite u krevet nakon čega će te panično pobjeći sa mjesta “zločina”.
Popiti kafu sa nekim na jedan goli ili polugoli način može da dobije jedan sasvim novi smisao.
Iako kratki performans “The tie that bind me …” nije namjenjen da prezentuje moju želju za ispijanjem kafe kroz njega možete da se nasluti o čemu se radi.

tie2Paige explores the concept of fraternal relationships and resuscitated texts that incorporates performance, and video, the work title is derived from a commonly used quote by US college fraternity houses.Through a process of repetition and evolution, a piece of twenty five year old, illicit cultural artefact on the brink of historical and cultural obsolescence is reinterpreted and re-presented to produce a new work.

This continues the artists exploration of the intersection of biography and late twentieth century learnt culture from West Coast, USA. Here investigating the possibility of re-performance and re-articulation of a text through the use of video and a performance of a short section of script, appropriated from the opening scene from a 1980’s gay adult movie ‘In Hot Pursuit’. Through this re-iterative process and by re-contextualising the purpose, place and form of the original, Paige unpicks the masculine, it’s construction and how this becomes a motif or modus operandi in fraternal dealings, continuing an ongoing exploration of the intersections between biography and late twentieth century popular culture.
