The single-channel video loop, given the same name as the exhibition, examines the relationships between girl culture, rock music, and public spaces both on and off-line. Inspired by the abundance of self-produced YouTube videos of girls playing electric

Juxtaposing found and newly shot footage of teenage girls performing covers
of the songs of AC/DC, The Ramones, Nirvana and others, Minor Threats disrupts the representation of masculinity commonly associated with electric guitarists in rock bands and questions how public space is defined.
