A Questionable Dinner Party

Performance took place in early December, 2011, at Tonawanda’s Ellicott Island Park, in the abandoned boat house. The day was rainy and grey, and the island was surrounded by choppy, murky water. Candles and hot chocolate in tea pots let off steam as guests (invited via invitation) rounded the bend into the crumbling space. The artist was silent, and the only noises were rain and wind chimes. Guests were offered both fresh and rotting food, as well as hot chocolate, in between the artist eating and drinking from the table. The artist consumed all ranges of food. Guests/viewers were left up to their own devices if they would partake as well. Some did, others refused.
