Demon Girl Duet presents a sonic-video duet in the form of a single-channel video projection, juxtaposing and interweaving two separate but simultaneous journeys on rivers of mythic proportions. One journey leads us toward the sea down the Chang Jiang (Yangtze), China’s principle waterway, and the other takes us inland up the Niagara, which spans a 35-mile stretch of the border between Canada and the United States. Each journey is led by the same ‘tourguide’ in the form of an elusive, phantasmagorical swimmer who sings a haunting siren song of warning about the ecological and social consequences of controlling nature and human populations by imposing rational order and insatiable development.
