Bulimic Birthday, Parts 1 & 2, 2017
Street Smart Collective
Terra Firma, Brooklyn, NY
Duration: 55 minutes
Eight days before my 40th birthday, I eat an entire supermarket sheet cake in one sitting in the gallery. I talk to friends and record the whole thing on my phone.
Periodically, I take trips to the bathroom to force myself to vomit using a toothbrush, phone in hand recording both the ingesting and regurgitation. The camera follows me back and forth from gallery to bathroom and back, as the rest of the exhibition continues around me.
