"Triple X Bitter is one of 7 performance-for-video works produced for Eric Bridgeman’s multi-dimensional project “The Sport and Fair Play of Aussie Rules” completed between 2008 and 2009. This performance-for-video work examines a hyper-real pub scenario involving key player Boi Boi the Labourer, a group of boisterous pub-goers, two black babes and an inflatable pool. With Bridgeman as Boi Boi the Labourer, the artist constructs and oversees the unfolding events, allowing the participants to explore their own perceptions, fears and understandings of rules of behavior that govern our experiences in Australian pub environments."
