The event happened in conjunction with Yves Scherer‘s A Bigger Splash exhibition running to March 19, and featured Richie Shazam and André Vauthey as ‘co-stars.’
The performance was accompanied by a text/press release, written by Vance Aiolos, where Nelson describes ‘head bimbo’ as a “meeting point, melting pot of all kinds of fashion, vandals soviet drag queens exiled, latin american dictators have free admission every night but socialites are also welcome…romantic self destruction in a couple of weeks.”
The Switzerland/Mexico City-based artist, writer and filmmaker works in performance and installations that straddle “philosophy lectures and poetics, becoming myth theory for talks about silence, iteration, or word/language ontology.” He will be releasing a book of poetry prose via Basel’s Pyramid Press in 2017.**
