C Through Outfit in SALAD-CHURCH-EXERCISE at the Co-Prosperity Sphere
A show about self-improvement through self-denial

July 4 - 18, 2009
Co-Prosperity Sphere
3219 S. Morgan, Chicago IL

While large-scale organs of protection and improvement, such as schools, hospitals, and prisons, enforce the social contract through a restriction of choice and a remote delegation of authority, personal or cultural techniques for redirecting and mastering libido, the inner primordial chaos we carry within, can be found in the options represented by salad, church, and exercise. The deep loyalty and repulsion aroused in modern hearts by these three everyday pursuits, and their heroic and perverse obsession with denying the desires of the body, is the starting point for the works in “Salad-Church-Exercise,” fantasies that are channeled into a polymorphous menagerie of audiovisual media.
