DESCRIPTION


Get wrapped up in the performance artwork Evoco, artist Midori's contribution to My Gorgeous Fetish, a night exploring the meanings and possibilities of the word “fetish.” Midori’s performance will erode and generate boundaries in equal measure, combining flowers, Japanese rope bondage, flesh and sumi ink to transform a moving body into a series of restrained sculptures and residual prints.

My Gorgeous Fetish will include a gallery talk by Jeff Durham, assistant curator of Himalayan art at the Asian Art Museum, titled Gold Rush: The Aura of an Ore as a part of the Gorgeous Idea talk series.
