... so far so good, I thought. I checked the "Washing Instructions' -'Machine Wash Tumble Dry.' Everything was fine, the same as always. I hate it when you find a product you like that fits a particular need of yours, and then they change it. 'Improve' it. I hate 'new, improved' anything.

At least the Jockey Classic Briefs were still Classic...

...Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol

An exploration of a modern man: fragile, vulgar, nostalgic, a dance of objects and memory, confession and in search of masculine codes that are rarely found. Make your own. DIY.

This solo was based on a series of short “do-it-yourself” installation performances that I presented in sequence, dealing with themes of masculinity and queerness. Following in the framework set up by je t’aimerai toujours, this performance was driven by a significant audio soundtrack that, once started, dictated the duration and pace of the performance.
