A site specific multi part work by Mike Chavez-Dawson & Len Horsey, this short low-fi video was created specifically for 'The Office Party' an event/show curated by Taneesha Ahmed & Annie Carpenter at Rogue Artists Studios, Manchester, 26/08/2011. The piece features both artists/curators as themselves alongside actress Amy Rudolph as Mrs Dardanelles; a high powered professional legal secretary whose alter ego (Mrs Dardenelles) is a ALDI Champagne quaffing polemicist who seeks out and gatecrashes art private views/events/openings to spout off her drunken yet mildly informed critique of the situation/location she finds herself within!
