This is the image my current work in progress revolves around (taken from the mother/son scene in My Own Private Idaho). It will eventually be a film/performance installation.


The mechanics: I'm River Pheonix and everyone else is his mother. I'll have a bunch of mother costumes made for differing sizes. The idea is that there will be a queue of queers lining up to stroke my hair.


1. Absolute, disgusting indulgence

2. Exploring intamacy of place, chosen family, self constructed community

3. Performance of the perversion & appropriation of the nuclear family


The installation and recording will take place at the Pride Queer Arts exhibition held by Queensland Association for Healthy Communities.
