never have i ever really liked cotton candy

performance at Once upon a pink, opening of Puderpink

we titled the opening event of our Puderpink series Once upon a pink because originally i wanted to work out an elaborate pink retelling of Rapunzel but then a pink submission shower made musings for story rethinking dissolve into flamingo powder and shortly before the opening of Puderpink when shopping for exhibition props i found a pair of improbable pink silicon cupcake cups that tickled my joy for elastic silicon cups which is why in the end i performed a youtube buttercream icing tutorial on my nipples and gave a little introduction on pink fetish theory.

Once Upon A Pink: there once was a vagrant storyteller that toured her Prawnstar Poems in a pink jumpsuit and magenta hair – soon she came to Berlin, where on a grey winter’s night she sat in a dark bar and drank Rosé with a glittery artist, who sometimes was a fox and an experimental filmmaker, who took pictures of pink lava and saturated sludge.  Surrounded by black coats and blue music whispered“what if there was a place, a pink place, the pinkest place? What if we brought people together because of a pigment? What if we would celebrate the pink sheep in the family?” A little later the artist/fox passed through the doors of the Puderraum by Treptow, attracted by its pink front light like an enamoured moth and she felt it in her wings that this might be the place, the pink place, the pinkest place. The Puderraum belongs to F.K.Fotoklub, an artist collective who had been using the magenta lit rooms for their exhibitions for over two years. Without batting an eyelash they said Yes to the idea of Pink Utopia. The pigment between Purple and Red was going to be reclaimed, renovated and drowned out in its own connotations until it would forget what it was.  Puderpink came as an open call out to artists, thinkers, makers and chromatic monomaniacs to participate in the take over. Main criteria: PINK.
With over one hundred submissions the small pilot project exploded fantastically into pigmented mayhem. Concepts of spectacular dimensions came in casually and artworks of every shape described every shade of this one colour. A giant pink tongue as a mini golf trail! Vagina walls made out of mattresses! Can we perform a poem of two flamingos? Can we do a power point presentation on blushing in public ? I’ve made a congealed mass of sugar and sperm!  Do you have a van for my bubblegum bathtub ? In a cross-continental email combat that could have put any Curatorial Studies degree out of business, the three fresh faced curators made their decisions in a measure between Pink and Audacious.  Puderpink is delicate, sexy, political, dirty, superficial, soft.
Puderpink is a one coloured playground of narratives: from fungi-icon and caviar fetish, to pop glue and neo nazis and cotton candy, over to the coming out and body fluids and our internal organs.  For a whole month we let Puderpink breathe in the pink lungs of Puderraum, where for three special nights we will have performances and (non) happenings.
In delicious fear and chromatic anticipation we wait for Puderpink, a feast of magenta, a conversation between pinkments and in any case the pinkest exhibition of this winter. Dresscode: 69% PINK.

b.fox performance including youpoetification, autobiographical writing on mind gaps and voice message techno. performance supported by Eddie Sellers

In collaboration with Eddie Sellers this spoken word improvisation juxtaposes shallow greasiness to notions of vulnerability.

Later in this performance I spread butter on my arms and then on the audience’s legs and cheeks. Someone of the audience asked me afterwards what it meant. After I’d explained it, she said how she loved how the mind fills gaps and that she was very short sighted and once thought she was witnessing a giant pancake lolling on the train platform before getting close enough to realize it was a wiener dog.
