Monkey is a Soothsayer. She rides in her limousine telling voodoo futures. The audience learns answers to important life questions from her semi-poetic musings, while being chauffeured around the Platz. An accompanying exhibition of mirrors "Monkeyshines" was curated by the artist to help build the monkey energy for performances. These mirrors were collected from fine folks who live in the neighborhood of Neukölln, Berlin.
This project was initiated as an experiement for optimal creative impact with community interaction. the performances play with the force the tellings of a soothsayer may have for staying power in one's mind's eye. The project was sponsored by Galerie Bauchhund and includes a documentary by Neukölln TV. Special thanks to Agi Böhm, Manuela Runge and Robert Rutman for their energy and artistry.
The mirrors were all returned without a crack.
