Killin' It 028: Lilith Burning

During my stay in England, I had the pleasure of working with Dan Holloway on a project sponsored by OVADA , Albion Beatnik Bookstore, and The Project Room in Oxford.  This was my first time in Oxford and I was happy to be working on this project.  There has been a rise in interest in Lilith as of late, especially within the UK.  So when Dan proposed we do a project based on the perceptions of Lilith I said yes.  Daisy Anne Gree has been touching on aspects of Lilith with Leviathan. Dan has captured the dark sexuality of Lilith in his Skin Book, and my book Blood and Pudding discusses aspects of sexuality, freedom, grieving, and deception, through my own teenage words and experiences. 

I brought along my clothing and plenty of makeup and the process began.  Dan and I soon discovered that when you plan a project for Lilith it almost always goes, not in the direction you thought, but in the exact opposite.  Our preliminary plans were long gone by the time we walked out the door.  We hit the streets, me in full Lilith regalia and began documenting people's reactions to me as Lilith.  The people shown in the photos were all willing participants.  England has certain photography laws we had to go by, so we couldn't photograph just anyone walking by.  The people who chose to participate were very open minded and genuinely interested.  We found that those referring to themselves as outsiders were the most accepting of the project.  Maybe drawn to it in a way.

We took the photos, printed them and started on our project, placing each one into a designated freezer bag, as if a scientific specimen and pinned them to a white cloth, writing only a few sentences on what was percieved.  Later in the day we brought it to the Albion Beatnik Bookstore where our reading would take place.  The reading went magically, even inspiring one of our audience members to write his own work and read it.  I was lovin' it.  More images can be seen on the Knickerbocker Circus Event Photos page.

Special thanks to Dan Holloway from Year Zero Writers, Dennis at Albion Beatnik Bookstore, Mick and Caty from Tigerlily, Videosyncratic, The Ballroom, The Big Issue, The Authentic Skate Shop, and to the good people at The Project Room and OVADA.

Killin' It 026: Events

Tomorrow I head off to Scotland for the weekend and then to Peterborough, London, and Oxford for a series of events and photo shoots.  I'm one lucky girl.  I get to see my friend Lisa get married in one of the most gorgeous places in the world, visit vodou practitioners,shoot some photographs wearing Julie Schworm's wonderful accessories, and be a part of amazing literary and art events with Year Zero Writers.

If you are in Oxford on May 19th please say hello to me and Year Zero member Dan Holloway.  We will be presenting a great event at Albion Beatnik Bookstore. Special thanks to The Project Room and OVADA.

On May 20th, The utterly awesome Year Zero Writers Collective and Knickerbocker Circus will be collaborating on an exciting event.  We have the  privilege of being hosted by one of London’s biggest literary nights, the Literature Lounge at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden, home of the National Poetry Society.  Please come say hello!

The event will be comprised of an interactive installation of vintage typewriters similar to the the KC event last summer, readings (see below), and an art exhibit by London based artist and Year Zero friend, Sarm.
