“Six Suicides In My Apartment” is a sound performance by Bill Talsma. Two lives are simultaneously on exhibit: one in which he is alive, and another in which he is not.
After each suicide in Bill’s apartment—located 2-doors south of LAWN Gallery* in a residential Chicago neighborhood (Logan Square)—Bill will field questions by visitors on a prepaid cell phone left at the gallery and relay critical information about the other side (his apartment) with a focus on forms that could not be liberated (but forces that could).
Concurrent to these multiple suicides, Bill will transmit detailed descriptions of images and screens to the gallery space that, among other things, summarize the face of God, stock photography, and selected works from art history.
Please join Bill as he abandons the world in which he is now simply dead (alive), and comes to rest in one where he is still alive (dead).
Each suicide will occur on the half-hour from 7pm-10pm.
Refreshments will be served.
