Audience members are guided into the small, darkened toilet space, where occasional flashes of light and projections of cartoons reveal cheap plastic lamps and Hello Kitty paraphernalia. Kitschy violin music and sentimental Italian pop blare form the speakers as the performers approach each visitor individually, coming close, blindfolding them, touching … An exploration, as the artists declare, of […]
