Despite the heat, the Fem//me was successful with a steady stream of attendees who were engaged and interactive with the work & artists. There was a live performance by David Livingston who wore his large pink & fuzzy phallus as he stared at the audience, breaking quite the sweat. There was a lot of fun fondling going on, helped keep good vibes throughout the night.
It was really good to hear feedback on the 3 SISTERS & DEVILS HOPYARD SERIES, it was the first time showing the rope performance/sculpture pieces and there was a lot of people that reposed to these works. I have one person ask me if their band could use the SISTERS piece in a one of their performances or to show it on stage while they performed. I love how people cannot help but touch the work because it is to tactile.
During this show I in real life outside of FB friending, met Laura Marsh who also showed sculptural work in this show. It was great to have her Cat Eye, 2011 piece across from my work. I love the playful and unavoidable nature of Laura’s work due to the size and excessively wonderful use of materials.
It excites me to have had the opportunity to show the other women artists in the show and I’m looking forward to working with Selby Nimrod again in the future.
