Can we ever fully escape?
J. Morrison proposes an escape from city life, and asks the question, "Is New York a prison?" Desiring to create a retreat from the norm, the artist invites your presence to accompany him on a new exploration. Continuing thematically with the previous performances, this work introduces new elements to form a site-specific storyline. Theatrical, provocative, and mysterious, the work pays homage to the likes of Sleep No More, David Lynch's the Black Lodge, and John Carpenter's film of the same title. Incorporating themes of fantasy vs reality, removal and escapism, lightness and darkness, loss and hope, the artist creates a journey into a new dimension. This is the 5th installment of the series.
J. Morrison is a multidisciplinary Brooklyn-based artist and the creator of the visual art project HOMOCATS. He creates using the art of the ephemeral, multiples, and take-one pieces. His practice is often about the experience of the work. For the past few years, the artist's annual performances have been noted for their spirit of playfulness, generosity, and mystique. Using intimacy and humor, he plays with issues of identity in an open-ended manner, often inviting the audience to observe or participate. Since 2009, his independent performance project "SPACE IS THE PLACE" has presented over 34 shows. His work is exhibited widely in NY and internationally.
