For KW’s first Lichtspiele, artist Jamie Crewe presents Potash Lesson, a performance that considers the rights to representation. Potash Lesson draws on the history and style of popular lectures presented at the Paris Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital during the late 1800s (where hysterical women were encouraged to perform their symptoms for a public audience). This history is placed in parallel with Crewe’s personal reflections on one of their older video works, which depicts a model invited to sit in their capacity as a gay man, but who has since identified as trans. Traversing materials that include a mistranslated play, a scene of humiliation, and a chemical stimulant, this performance is a meditation on questions of trans visibility, feminine pathologization, and the interpersonal ethics of artistic collaboration.
Jamie Crewe is an artist, singer and a beautiful bronze figure with a polished cocotte’s head.
