Sharky Sings Paul
Front/Space - Kansas City, MO
with Amelia Colette Jones and Maggie Ginestra
Opening Saturday, May 19 2012, 6pm
Sharky Sings Paul is a re-singing and expansion of Paul Simon's 1986 album Graceland. Sharky Sings Paul operates from the perspective of a fictional character, Sharky, in order to explore the imperfect-ness of personal, cultural, and historical memory. Utilizing repetition in a variety of media including sound, video, and found objects, this body of work dwells in the ambiguity of a combination of storgic relationships. Sharky is every person who has ever desired a Grace-land.
