Apologies for this performance of mine; but I can offer something of an excuse, which is that it’s the only one of these pieces where I was playing a role within something larger, rather than just reading or performing a text as myself. This role was as a figure delivering some version of seduction. I’m not sure whom I could have seduced with this in reality, but that was the specific instruction given to me and to a few others too, by a talented artist named Jean-Luc Vilmouth, who filmed us all. He then used our various depictions of seduction to make an interesting and successful video installation art piece called Bar Séduire at the Guggenheim Museum Soho. My text from “Venus”; shot by Jean-Luc Vilmouth. (3’41”)
