Day Magee- voice/performance
In “Keep Up”, Magee adapts Kim Kardashian’s September 2022 interview with Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine following her appropriation of Marilyn Monroe’s clothing as a speculative score for an oratory performance. Having internalised the parasocial surveillance culture of reality television, Kardashian surrenders her life data as a pop cultural product to be consumed and memetically reproduced via other bodies, reflecting the surveillant ways in which we live and embody our own personae. Here, Magee interpolates her answers as an absurdist monologue, experimenting with the material cadence, tonalities, and rhythms of speech, enacting a memetic variation of this emergent media entity.
Tickets are free, booking available on Eventbrite from 23 October at 10am.
