This event has ended.

Zach Feuer Gallery presents a performance by Momus in collaboration with performance artist Aki Sasamoto. For two weeks, Momus and Aki will perform from Tuesday through Friday, 2-6 pm and on Saturdays from 12-6 pm.

In Love is the End of Art, Momus will take the dual roles of art critic and unrequited lover, framing and critiquing Aki's performance (which involves lectures, potatoes, stretched utensils, and bungee elastic) with a narrative that slips awkwardly between the abstract and the specific, the public and the private. Dressed as a kuroko, a kabuki stagehand, Momus will hover over Aki's performance like a ghost, occasionally breaking off to sing along with a track from Martin Rev’s strange 1996 album “See me Ridin”.

Aki will completely ignore Momus, as a kabuki actor ignores the stagehands bustling around. She originally created her piece within the insular environment of her psyche, where the only type of love she was concerned with was platonic love for her mother. She did not consider how others might frame her. Love is the End of Art exists between Aki’s personal intention and Momus’s interpretation.
