The Final Night In Paradise - Documentary Installation

  • Oliver McGuirk
  • Mickey Portlock

DJ Harvey re-soundtracks lost footage from legendary night club; Paradise Garage, NYC. The 9 screen video installation features unseen video tapes of the mythic closing party in 1987. The AV piece mirrors CCTV split-screen monitoring to reveal a Boiler Room-esque voyeuristic window into a night at Paradise Garage. No cameras were allowed at the Garage yet the installation features never-before-seen original footage of the legendary NYC club. Included are shots of cultural icon Keith Haring`s Pop Art murals and footage of Haring himself dancing during the closing weekend; as well as the maestro Levan spinning to his devoted crowd, and guest performances from diva singers Gwen Guthrie and Liz Torres and a young ESG.
