Project Rage Queen has gained a reputation for pushing the limits of performance with unsettling and confrontational transformations of space. They have shocked and wooed audiences in The Broad Museum, The Hammer Museum, L.A.C.E., San Francisco, Chicago, London and Amsterdam. During their week-long residency at Coaxial Arts, Project Rage Queen produced a multi-media installation and “specimercial” untucking the concepts of Queendom, rage, asstral projection, identity, “safe-space”, and body dysmorph-ication.

You see, no one’s going to help you Bubby,
because there isn’t anybody out there to do it.
We’re all just complicated arrangements of atoms and subatomic particles–
we don’t live.
But our atoms do move about in such a way
as to give us identity and consciousness.
We don’t die;
our atoms just rearrange themselves.
There is no God.
There can be no God;
it’s ridiculous to think in terms of a superior being.
An inferior being, maybe,
because we, we who don’t even exist,
we arrange our lives with more order and harmony
than God ever arranged the earth.
We measure; we plot;
we create wonderful new things.
We are the architects of our own existence.
What a lunatic concept to bow down before a God
who slaughters millions of innocent children,
slowly and agonizingly starves them to death,
beats them, tortures them, rejects them.
What folly to even think that we should not insult such a God,
damn him, think him out of existence.
It is our duty to think God out of existence.
It is our duty to insult him.
Fuck you, God!
Strike me down if you dare, you tyrant,
you non-existent fraud!
It is the duty of all human beings to think God out of existence.
Then we have a future.
Because then–and only then–
do we take full responsibility for who we are.
And that’s what you must do, Bubby:
think God out of existence;
take responsibility for who you are.
As part of the Broad’s Summer Happenings, Mutant Salon is creating a performance that moves from the Oculus Hall, inside the museum’s anus, through the belly of the beast and out through its mouth, to the outside main entrance of the Broad. We are bringing Mutant Salon outside for our sisters, our community, and audience members to experience this special performance for free, without need for paid admission. Bring your looks, lights, and sparkles. All are welcome to partake in the creation of all this beauty!
A Voyage Through The EXNoZone is an immersive installation that uses sci-fi landscapes, fantasy, sexuality, the impossible, and the use of the body as sculpture to create a seductive and mind-altering experience that explores the possibility of a new world rising up from the ashes from an old system–a world free from the constraints of our time.
The installation combines video documentation and sound to create an intense, highly synchronized, dynamic introduction to a sci-fi reality where social progress triumphs over traditional ideas about gender identity and sexual orientation.
Featuring Alice Cunt, Dull Finn, and Travis D with support from Sofia Moreno and Xara Thustra.
