A performance / event / situation … mixed situation in which artists respond to the riddle what is no sooner spoken than broken.
Expect a few objects, no videos and live and ambient situations themed around awkward silences, broken promises, oversharing, and underperforming.
(The answer to the riddle is silence or a secret.)

Gregg Evans, Untitled (Nate and I), 2010, Digital C-Print, 20 x 20"

Works in show:

Fanny Allié
An installation which alludes to ephemera and to the easily damageable aspects of things and situations.

Nathan Austin
A text based on captions and other forms of “non-writing” or “ambient writing” (in Tan Lin’s terms).

Renata Espinosa & Ryan Saylor
Script based on online comments from a NY TImes magazine piece by blogger Emily Gould which incited thousands of comments directed toward her “oversharing” piece (which revealed, ironically of course, that everyone is guilty of oversharing even as they’re criticizing it).

Gregg Evans
Three photographs from the series “I’ll Take Care Of You”.

Erik Scollon
“fingers, how many can you take?”

Porcelain fingers will be scatted throughout the space and offered for the taking.

Sally Szwed & Michelle Levy
A collection of micro-scripts for audience enactment

Zefrey Throwell
Zefery leads a game where participants will act out animal behaviors…?

Alisha Trimble
An original rap song comprised of all the promises ever made to the artist.
