I am fascinated by performance artists and I’m not talking about dancers, singers, actors you find in the local television.
The Toxic Titties captured my attention, they are a feminist group in California.
Toxic Titties is a collaborative group of feminist artists working with performance, video, and film, bringing a subcultural phenomenon into the frame of conceptual art. Using pleasure and play, the group mutates with each performance to include a multiplicity of participants and embody queer perversions of cultural ideals. Through failure and excess, Toxic Titties simultaneously invokes and destabilizes collective identity formations.
|What do we want?|
Freedom! Power! Money! Respect! Pleasure! Representation! Sex! Indeterminacy! Revolution!
When do we want it?
I am not a fan of simply rallying on the streets with raging fists in the air, stomping feet on the pavement and lung-out shouting for the audience or bystanders to get the message. I believe we can send the message in ways that won’t really need throats and lungs to exit our mouths or to convey the message with either eloquence or such profound vulgarity, which ever works best.
I wish there would be more young artists and groups here in the country who deals more in art rather in a pure political agenda. Can’t we infuse art and politics? There are a lot of issues in the country that spraying sublime wit on walls is simply unoriginal and just plain classless and tasteless. KMU does that, the Farmer’s Union does that, everyone does that, do something different.
We need more artists in the Philippines.
