Game: Hunt, Capture, Kill
A variation of the work Gimme Bak Mah Clothes. This two-hour ritualistic performance draws on themes of liberation, race, and sex while dis-empowering the spirit of Thomas Rice—otherwise called Jim Crow Rice—the father of American minstrelsy theater who contrived to flatter contemporary belief in white supremacy and who was born on the Lower East Side of NYC. In this production, the artist will use: ‘Rice’, spices, powder, rum, fire, live butterflies and more, while donning his bikini sculpture made from lion, bear, and zebra skulls, along with deer vertebrae and Rastafarian dreadlocks. With assistance from Rocheford Belizaire and Suzanne Broughel.
