THE DRAWING BOARD
In a world of post-truth politics in which the facts are powerless against the fiction, in which conspiracy theories are merged in with myth, detail and data. We live through digital avatars created from carefully selected images and updates. We have conversations with liminal nuance. It's tense and it feels like we're on the brink of massive change.
Identity, history, and the truth are all up for grabs.
We can truly be whatever we want.
I'm Bruce Willis.
I'm exploring the idea of celebrity, and the notion that it is impossible for you to disprove the fact that, I am Bruce Willis.
"To accepted that nothing is irrefutable is to fully understand that the solidity of 'truth' is actually inconceivable. In a world governed by these rules, anything can be true."
A POST-TRUTH PERFORMANCE
I want to wrestle... The atmosphere, the baying crowd, the action, the muscles, the face-paint, the outfits, the drama.
When I was a kid my heroes existed in the vibrant and artificial world of Pro-Wrestling!
MACHO has thus far been a bit of a physical flex that explores manliness, drag-culture, and hero worship... All whilst contemplating the fact that the WWE is possibly the most commercially successful piece of theatre the world has ever seen.
