ACTIONS:  PPP DEATH, Boston Hub Week: Castle Drone Corral. City Hall building, Boston, MA 2017

At Boston City Hall, I wore a skeleton body suit and had a projection of santa muerte behind me while I stood at one end of a long black rectangle with a white skull on the opposite end and in an hours time I took a shit, pissed and puked on myself and on City Ha(e)ll. Then I left.

These were my feelings about USA politics in that time and place. x

CASTLEDRONE CORRAL is a sliver of the Boston underground peering out over the HUBweek landscape featuring Vela Oma, Autumn Ahn, Phil Fryer, Jesse Kaminsky, Tom Maio and Tais-Toi (Anthony Palocci Jr. & Isabella Koen) in performance, sound, video and sculpture. In their works, experiences with death and identity, space and base, instant coffee, architecture and play will occupy the corridors of City Hall’s balcony.

CASTLEDRONE, an experimental exhibition program based in Boston, and the participating artists in this project, are but a pinpoint on the map of Boston’s historic and current network of largely underrepresented underground art communities. Many sites of experimental art in Boston exist in flux, on the fringe and at risk. As we settle in above ground, on the outskirts of HUBweek, we will channel the scattered basements, lofts and warehouses that keep the muffled but consistent heartbeat of Boston’s underground pumping.
