Posted on April 22, 2013 in Curatorial.

THE MOTEL SISTERS

How would you describe your performance in Workout?

Our performance is a dark, gross, glamour-gone-stale, funny, cheekily political and immobile ode to the importance of our own opinions.

In what ways is your performance a work out?

While letting our fingers do all the walking, we will be giving our generosity and social conciousness muscles a solid work out, via social media. We will be giving out 'likes’ with every ounce of our energy. Having great hair and a social conscience may not break a sweat, but lying prone in bed all day, in the name of change, is harder than it sounds.

How do you envisage the audience engaging with your work?

We envision general horror mixed with curiosity and eventual mirth, with a trepidatious audience unsure just how close they should get to us. People will likely be tempted nearer by the siren-scent of Maccas, Dominos and Glen 20 wafting from our bed. Ultimately a child or two may be traumatised by our appearance – but is positive change ever easy?

Is there audience participation?

Only if they’re cute. Or haz cheezburger.

How do you approach transforming the MCA’s new Level 1 North Gallery in one day?

We intend to bring the Ono/Lennon bed laden with the mother of all Honey Boo Boo bods.

Will you have an online presence allowing the audience outside the Museum to follow your performance?

You can follow our performance online via our Twitter account or Facebook page.

How can people find out more about you?

The Motel Sister’s performance runs Tuesday 23 April 2013 from 10am to 5pm in the MCA’s Level 1 North Gallery.
