I have a bit of catching up to do…I was so tired by the end of the ArtPrize 2010 that I could not make an entry even though lots of interesting things where happening. For the most part I received a great deal of positive feedback from my performance and installation in Grand Rapids. There were a few snide remarks made in my direction which I have to say where almost laughable. One day a man and his wife came by the piece and while he was reading my artist’s statement his wife put her nose in the air and walked off muttering under her breath ” just walk ” as if I have never moved my body. The man looked up at me on stage and rolled his eyes and shrugged as if to say “what can I do? that’s just the way she is” Another day I arrived at the venue to find that someone had left me a little gift…their membership tag for their gym, strategically placed where I would find it. I laughed. I guess some people were just going to miss the point even as it was typed up in plain English right there in front of them “Go Out Side and Play” means exercise folks, only you can enjoy it instead of beating the crap out of yourself or working out until you puke.
