Call for Installation Artists to Re-Imagine Erotic Pillow Books....

CALL FOR INSTALLATION ARTISTS:  Visual & Design Artists, Inter-Disciplinary Creators, Theatrical Designers, Multi-Media Makers, Interior Decorators, Environment Builders, Etc. to Recreate Classic Pillow Books in an Immersive, Live Event.

 

Site-specific performance producers, Peculiar Works Project, are seeking a variety of daring, boundary-crossing artists to create immersive installations for a live performance featuring contemporary recreations of classic erotic pillow books. Each artist will be given a room, material resources and stipend as well as a team of collaborators to realize an 8-minute, repeating, performed installation. All together, Spring Pictures of the Floating World will perform June 28 – July 1 in a large site in NYC’s East Village where audiences will move from space to space, charting their own performance experiences throughout the exhibition hours.

 

Asian pillow books thrived in a time and place beyond western religion and original sin (Google “shunga” for details). This project is open to all types of artists interested in creating one part of a fantastical pleasure palace, utilizing design, paint, sculpture, costumes, puppets, prosthetics, and more. It’s a fun and informative way to explore cultural difference, the western gaze and sexual boundaries. More information can be found at www.peculiarworks.org/pillow.html. If you’re interested and available in June, contact pillow@peculiarworks.org by May 18th with a resume or bio, and let us know your interest and questions.
