Tali and Marin’s work is performative, most often existing as video in the shape of documentation of a private performance. These performances broadly explore intimacy and identity, as well as examines how queer bodies and identities exist in a society that polices and asserts what is socially acceptable.
I used to live across from McDonalds with my mom & one of her much older boyfriends (Perry? Jerry? idk). They were always at the “opera,” so I spent a lot of time home alone with my Easy-Bake Oven. For my twelfth birthday, my mom gave me a child-sized mop & bucket, with which I entertained myself endlessly, along with hula-hooping. This intersection of hurt + boredom = ecstatic mopping is more or less the pattern of my life. I’m not sure why I gave up baking, mopping, and hula-hooping for pictures and bad poetry, but I expect most things to return to me when I’m ready.
