Performances Upcoming > new performance series: ANY SIZE MIRROR IS A DICTATOR
Brian and I went to the midwest to get good and close to the void. Whilst we were there, we started a new project-ion, Any Size Mirror is a Dictator.
This will be a cluster of site-responsive performances, materials, objects, and texts, associatively, formally, and conceptually theorizing that any size mirror is a dictator.
Gas pumps, home-made catapult, hamburgers, tiny brains, canning jars, budweiser, class war, contact mics, Big Boy, false teeth. We find ourselves in a parkinglot, a storm is blowing in across the soybean fields, a WWII airplane flies over, the roof falls in, twin fawns nurse with their spotted bodies glowing almost orange against the bright green moss-covered garbage, islamophobia and antisemitism are grilled in a marinade of white wine, windows are made out of plywood, painted turtles poke their heads up out of the river, we park the black pick-up truck outside the discount fireworks and tobacco store…
We begin initial performances on Monday, August 27 at the Delancey as part of the Fare-Thee-Well Borts Minorts show, curated by Valerie Kuehne. 7pm-11pm. Suggested donation only, drinks two-for-one, only Big Boy goes out on a Monday night, but this time it’s worth it, he WILL find love.
Then, just as we breathe sighs of relief, transplanted out of factory jobs making RVs or fiberglass statuettes for chain restaurants into Brooklyn, we find that we have become gentrifiers, loathed “artists.” We are welcome nowhere, nobody wants our burger. “Economies” of attention, survival, resources, and value mirror us during the iCan project, we perform Thursday, August 30 at 8pm and Thursday, September 13 at IV Soldiers Gallery. performances you should definitely attend happen EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT in September.
We will go here and there with this project, as invited, as uninvited, in public, in private, and so on, adapting to the context, the crowd, the site, playing with the lights…there may or may not be electric guitar.
