Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster |  PICA | Feb 13-19 | ★ ★ ½ 

A friend recommended we go see’ Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster’. Someone trustworthy. Someone who knows about these things. We went to see the show. WtF? Please explain what we saw. Someone. It was entertaining in a self conscious, self referential, self deprecating yet ultimately obscure kind of way.

I’m currently struggling with a feeling that there is something somehow inherently wrong with me for not being able to penetrate beyond the artifice and perceive the meaning of the work. Rather like a victim of abuse blames themselves for being so misused. Something about a sitting duck and whether action has any power beyond the act itself. I think.

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi You’re my only hope. Maybe you can check it out and let me know what you reckon. Showing at PICA as part of the Fringe World festival.

‘Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster’ is a performance from Melbourne based artist Nicola Gunn.

Her biography states that she creates work that blends participatory performance, live art, video and installation to explore the fragility of the human condition with subversive humour.

Piece For Person and Ghetto Blaster’ is described as the story of a man, a woman and a duck. It dissects the excruciating realms of human behaviour in an attempt to navigate the moral and ethical complexities of becoming a better person.
