Interplay is the first of my tapes to allude directly to narrative, both in terms of its content and structure. The work presents a sequence of events connected by the recurring image of a young woman who looks out from the screen. A storyline is sketched out but is later questioned by the woman herself - heard offscreen as the events and images repeat themselves. The tape reveals my developing interest in narrative devices and their implications to meaning, message, structure and form. 'The camera = cat; the viewed person = mouse. Partridge is working, particularly in his recent tapes, with a light and slightly ironical touch that is sometimes surprising to people and the importance of which is overlooked.' - Hugh Stoddart
