Don’t miss THE HAPPENING II tomorrow!
I will be re-imagining a piece from 10 years ago (almost to the day) as an ephemeral performance that will not be seen again for another 10 years!
Shop With Me (2004) was a performance and video piece that was itself a tribute to Play With Me (1994) a photograph by one of my all-time favorite artists, Mariko Mori (see first image above). These four stills are all that remain of the video, which was lost in the aftermath of Katrina.
Impermanence is an important theme in my artwork as well as my life, so this performance will not be documented except by happenstance. I hope to see you Saturday for what will surely be a night to remember!
