Jillian Mayer & Locust Projects

Harpo Foundation is providing support for Jillian Mayer’s performance and exhibition ‘We Are Talking’ at Locust Projects. A sound stage for a televised talk show will be installed inside the gallery, creating a set for the artist to perform the role of host to gallery visitors. The artist will not appear physically in the space but remotely in the form of a fog-projected apparition. During three-hour-long live performances, visitors will be engaged in emotional, comical and casual conversations about topics ranging from current events to their personal lives. During the exhibition, the fog-projected “host” will be present on a video-loop.
