A Very Reliable Performer refers to a postcard caption of Geyser, an active hot water

spring in Iceland. Playing with expectations of touristic consumption and fulfilment,

this artwork sets up a theatrical relationship with Geyser. A video loop constantly

waits for the spring to erupt into the sky. An accompanying photograph offers a

taster to keep the onlooker intrigued; yet their interest is never seemingly rewarded

with a moment of climax.
