FIERCE WORKOUT begins! My member’s project will be up at Struts until its reception this Saturday, the 23rd, at 8pm!
I will be exploring a humorous form of (monoprint) printmaking and self-portraiture, in which I will put on a heavy application of makeup, exercise on a treadmill, and make a print of the melted makeup on a white towel, which will then hang from the wall.
Anyone interested in making prints of their made-up faces after running on the treadmill are welcome to do so. Makeup is provided.
I am interested in the remnants of the activity, the towels, more than the performance of running in makeup.
The idea came from a memory of running in full pancake make up at a cross country running event in middle school. Shit got sloppy.
