Got Something to Say but no Joy

Curtis Flirt

Curtis Flirt

Using as a trigger the irregular awkward shapes created by the elongated limbs of Ian Curtis (from the band Joy Division), in this piece performed without sound artist Sam Metz talks of celebrity, disenchantment, ritual, gender and conformity.

The ‘non-performance’ made without sound permits the artist an ugliness and lack of poise (typically not socially associated with notions of feminine) that represents a wider struggle around the gender queer voice.

It reflects the artists own struggle to find voice in her body.
