white male artist stands in front of a series of abstract paintings

barely surviving a homeless hostel after our worst sectioning we discovered sergei parajanov’s film colour of pomegranates.  parajanov was an incredible artist/film-maker from literal transcaucasia. indo-european languages were birthed here. the soviet union imprisoned him because of his bisexuality, causing huge mental distress / trauma yet his childlike wonder couldn’t be silenced.

we share so much with this fat-mad-bisexual-big-kid-dissident.

performing and making visuals / sound as gobscure, writing as burn, we use plural as reflection of our broken-mind.

rose carved in rain draws on childhood wisdoms and big-kid dissent in a highly visual performance.

we all need our dreams back.
