This artist talk was made in conjunction with my performance, Fudgie’s Death at the 14Karat Cabaret and my presentation Object/Fetish at a salon/art party in the H&H Arts Building as part of the 2011 Transmodern Festival.
On July 17th, 2009, at Georgia Tech I performed “Pump that Pussy”, an excerpt from Bride of Wildenstein – the Musical, in which an aging socialite grows fur and claws to recapture her philandering game hunter husband’s attention.
On August 23rd, 2002, I designed and modeled an outfit from my short-lived post-apocalyptic fashion label, Mutation at the Dirt Palace for the Make Your Own Fashion – Make Your Own Government, a fashion show and fundraiser for Vote Toste campaign. The Dirt Palace is a feminist art space located at an abandoned library building in Olneyville, Rhode Island that was repurposed.
On March 24th, 1998, Windy City Times included on their cover images and a write up of Day of Beauty and Ritual, which I curated with Kathleen O’Shea and Kokoe Johnson. Day of Beauty was a performance art circus celebrating spring as a time of rebirth, renewal and rejuvenation through a collection of performances, installations, and unique beauty treatments, climaxing with the Spring Equinox Ritual.
