(Shyness is nice) Ian Potter Museum Performance 2019

Shyness is nice is a performance and video work. The performers, with faces and bodies concealed, draw strips of fabric from an incision at the mouth. With tongues protruding, the group form a choir to sing a rendition of Ask by the Smiths. The work is an absurdist take on social critique and performance anxiety.
