Commodity Dreamgirls Recess Forever

Commodity Dreamgirls Recess For Ever (How can I Help?), performance, duration: 15 minutes, 2019

I read from Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website 'Goop’. I focus on an article recommending that women, inspired by the concubines of Chinese Emperors, insert $60 jade eggs into their vaginas as a ‘spiritual detox’ and in order to strengthen ‘sex muscles’, making them look younger with smoother skin.

Whilst reading, I move my legs in front of a projector and camera, making a looped image. I remove my shirt revealing the text ‘I prefer a hammer’ written in lipstick on my chest. Then I take a hammer from my vagina and use it to smash an LED scrolling name badge that I am wearing. It reads ‘How can I Help?’. I finally write ‘Commodity dream girls recess forever’ on the projected screen with lipstick.
