Greasy Box, 2012

The Personal is Political

Matchbox Gallery, Wellington

A performance response to the sexist joke:
How are a woman and KFC the same?
Once you're done with the breasts and thighs, you've got a greasy box to put your bone in.

I eat either an entire ready roast chicken or a bucket of KFC, locking eyes with my audience as I place the bones in white panties, gradually stained by grease. I eat until I either finish the chicken or physically can't eat anymore, layering symbols of meat/woman/product into a confronting public gorging.
