You’ve been anticipating the images! Check out Jordan Vinyard and Craig Ryan’s recent collaborative performances.
The undertone of the series is to unhinge the typical definition of a performance. By approaching this series with cynicism and providing limited documentation, we hope to create an atmosphere of skepticism for the viewer, specifically related to the endurance performances of the 70’s.
We intend to title the project 10 Fake Performances. Rather than inducing the notion that the acts included within the documentation are actualities, there is an insistence of their falsehood. By including this dialogue upfront, the performances play with the subject of certainty, issuing that the viewers believe in something fake.
