Pip Brant | Pet-o-Rama | Miami Performance International Festival


Pet-o-ramma is an interactive project that has evolved from the 70’s provocative Austrian action artist, Valie Export. I take the spirit of that confrontation with Pet-O-ramma and combine the backyard food production rights movement with feminism. This piece consisted of a breast box worn on my chest. I am in my native custom dress to connect my own historical culture with the present day reality. Like Export, I charge a fee to feel inside my breast box.

For this performance I will augment this work with music that I play myself. I will replace the breast box with a musical instrument that the viewer chooses. I will play these instruments to the best of my ability for 15 seconds for a dollar. Choices are on instruments normally played in a cappella band.
