Zena Zezza Director-Curator Sandra Percival invited thirty-eight artists, including myself, to perform for two minutes each during this homage to Jean Dupuy's Soup and Tart. I squeezed beneath the gallery's ground story, pointed tungsten hot lights up through the loose boards above me (toward Anthony McCall’s solid light work, You and I, Horizontal (II), featured on the second floor) and screamed gargling through a gallon of water (underneath Laura Heit’s 1857 Project—an animated video based on the 1894 Willamette River flood that sunk Portland's central business district below thirty feet of water—on the first floor) while lying in the dirt on my back.
