DISCUSSION

"Opening"

August 2002, St Mark's Church NYC, Mary Magdelan Cabaret.

"Opening" is about birth. The first sacred doorway we come through to life is the vagina.

Behind the performance I screened a short video I made which had still shots of doorways around the neighborhood interspersed with shots of vaginas. The video ends with a man and woman going inside a doorway, it slams closed.

I enter rolled up in a carpet and am rolled out onto a canvas. I cover myself in reds, brown and pinks, as though giving birth to myself. I am rolled up and carried off leaving a painting that resembles a birth bed.

Duration: 5 minutes.

MISSION STATEMENT

“TACTICAL STREAM artists in action” - To unite & inspire people, honor women & the earth, mobilize the masses & attract global media.”

WATER WORLD

Violence & Freedom are similar, which is America built on and which does it promise & deliver? And If both, in what measure? Does violence fuel our idea of freedom? Competition & battle are human nature, it begins as inocent play & is subverted into the acceptance of violent oppression of people & the planet. “Inciting joy”, you can not be arrested for that. Joy & rebellion are contagious, bringing us to the awakening that not war, not love, but play between people grants us freedom, an intrinsic human trait that we must never forget.
