Performance > Fixation Station

This work was performed as part of the Hoot and Peep Mini Performance Festival which took place in the Owl's Nest Bookstore storefront window, Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Hoot and Peep Mini Performance Festival was organized in conjunction with Salon Connex, a collaborative project between The Charlotte Street Arts Centre and Gallery Connexion, to inspire dialogue around works of art shown at Gallery Connexion. Performances as part of the Hoot and Peep Mini Performance Festival responded to the exhibition, Tokyo Hotel Story by Nathalie Daoust.

Fixation Station included repeated performed actions, such as tracing a slow, circular line of red lipstick from the lips outward until the entire face was covered, making lipstick face prints on the papered wall behind the performance space, consuming sunflower seeds in the shell as well as a spread of fruit that partially cleaned the lipstick off so that the performance sequence could begin again. In the adjacent window, a monitor was set up to display text pieces composed on the theme of oral fixation.
