I DON'T LIKE BROCCOLI
(but i'll try anything once)
2019, @lungleygallery, London
A surreal landscape shows broccoli intermingling with breasts, legs and feet, hot pink bleeding across the canvas.
I don’t like broccoli (but I’ll try anything once) is a performance piece within an interactive installation that explores sexuality, submission, gender roles and labour by Elizabeth Prentis. For the first time Prentis is taking a pre-existing painting and realising it as a highly physical performance, creating anticipation for the viewer, re-contextualising the original work and giving it new agency beyond it’s original function.
The one-night only performance at LUNGLEY combines installation, performance and karaoke, bringing to life the original painting from which this show was inspired. For the remainder of the show, guests are invited to explore the surreal and sexual performance environment and interact, reimagine and reinterpret the space for themselves.
