INSTALLATION/PERFORMANCE — Concrete, bricks, chains and leather: In a set with all the paraphernalia of a dungeon, Simone Aughterlony and Jen Rosenblit have imagined a profound performance that dissects the current state of feminist politics and its utopias. Here, underground encounters and the persistence of ordinary domestic life adopt a policy that integrates caring, danger and amnesia.

Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort despite the un-governability of ingredients. Is this a construction site or a cooking show? There remains a curiosity of how each thing fits. Everything fits but at what cost? The room offers an expanded horizon, no longer obliged to rid oneself of the things that supposedly suspend and delay progress. To a soundtrack composed by Miguel Gutierrez and Colin Self, Everything Fits In The Room is an immersive experience with a sweet smell of pine and musk.
