la performance (2017) acrylic on wall, 12 hours ig post

 

A day after meeting John Baldessari, Shirt began a performance painting "I will not make any more boring rap" across the length of the wall, timing it so that painting through the night the doors would open to the public right when he was about halfway down the wall. The new album played out of speakers in multiple rooms. Throughout the day people came and talked to the artist, watching him work, and listening to the music. Other works in the space included a gold record (for Flume's "On Top" which Shirt wrote and performed on in 2011) hung backwards, a rack of tees and hoodies for sale, works in the bathroom and on the roof.
