Talking About Sex While Holding A Fishbowl, 2021
TALKING ABOUT SEX WHILE HOLDING A FISHBOWL performance, inspired by Linda Mary Montano’s performance of Taking About Sex While Under Hypnosis
Take 12 portraits of others dressed as the version of you they identify you with. Hang those portraits on a wall. Record yourself talking about your sex life as you walk outside holding a fish bowl half full of water. Put this video on a DVD and play it from a small TV monitor without the audio. Sit on a stool in front of your work and document the installation.
I will sit on a stool wearing a white tank with blonde hair. Twelve photographs of other’s dressed in this costume will hang on the wall. A DVD will be played on a TV monitor, showing TALKING ABOUT SEX WHILE HOLDING A FISH BOWL. The photographs present how others identify me physically, I am unaware of what I look like beyond this.
There are three elements to the performance
1. Photographs of others disguised as me. 2. Me, dressed in this version of my common identity. 3. A video of myself holding a fish bowl half full of water on a walk, talking about my sex life.
Is my art or my indentiy as an artist identifiable without the expense of sex?
23 Rue Montlosier, 2021
Blindfolded, rebuild a room from your childhood. A place you considered home. Build three walls out of paper, and a floor. Begin on your knees. Using a piece of charcoal, rebuild the place you called “home” by memory.
Blindfolded, I will recreate the apartment of 23 Rue Montlosier, Clermont-Ferrand, France. I will sit on my knees and visualize the last memory of this room from age nine. I will follow my hand as it remembers furniture, objects, decor, architectural structures, etc.
