The 4 minute video desperado shows the artist dressed as a cowboy, wearing a John Wayne mask and a gender-bending prothesis that is both penile and clitoral and riding a mechanical bull in a clearly fake Western film set. Gender, pop culture, consumerism, the american ceaseless quest of territory are the objects of investigation, and they are simultaneously engaged and resisited.
