Saturday March 12th at Local Project Art Space
Welcome to our table, an elsewhere where nothing is what it seems. Everything could really be something else: there are myriad ways to enjoy the delicate aromas and flavors of these instantaneous perceptual ambiguities. Don’t feast upon them too fast–this could cause self-induced indigestion–though swallowing them whole with unhinged jaws may be needed to saturate the indulgent tyrants inhabiting our gorge with stomach-acid, eroding their every concept of necessity/propriety. During this dinner service, the body craves peptide-insulation against benevolent ignorance and against the economic ulceration of art making/consumption/participation.
Pass the Salt. And the Pepper. And While You’re at it, the Ketchup too is a full menu of live works with recipes involving scores, actions, movement, and substances, situating performative, social and ritual practices. Open to the public. Any/all suggested donations will be distributed to the artists. (Leili Huzaibah)
