2014

Guerilla Performance/Exhibition

Inspired to take the themes of the Urban Camo Seed Bomb series in a more dynamic direction; when creating the performance I thought on destruction, value, and taboo; as well as their inverses creation, unimportance, and social acceptability. How is cultural importance conferred and what crises are caused by the non-consensual revocation of that status? The more I thought, the more I kept coming back to the works of Peter Carl Faberge, to those charmingly vacuous objects d’art branded with a name that personifies elegance, excess, luxury, and their negation; the beauty of the object irretrievably mired in the fate of their owners. The last gasps of an empire can be heard in their presence and it turns out that eggs, like tsars, don't do well up against a wall.

Taking place in the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland in fall 2014, Fauxberge Revealed entailed exhibiting the eggs in empty lots and easements followed by a procession to collect the eggs and bring them to the train tracks for their ritual destruction against a graffitied wall.
