Peaches @ Le Poisson Rouge, 10/19/2013
Have people given you unnecessary shit for expressing yourself in that way?Peaches celebrated the NYC premiere of her new film, Peaches Does Herself, with a show at Le Poisson Rouge last weekend (10/19). The film is a documentation of Peaches' stage show of the same same name, which gives a mythologized, rock oper-ized account of someone named Peaches. Like the film, her LPR show also featured wild costumes, much sexual freedom and an appearance by the legendary Sandy Kane. JD Samson and Chris E. Pants helped at the show too. Pictures from LPR are in this post.
Good, I'll take it. And I'll turn it around. Take this shit. That's what art is about. Art is ultimately about the discussion and about humans relating to each other. It goes deeper than the art. It's relations. Art is nothing if [it] doesn't make you feel or think. Some people are just like, "Yes. Beauty." But those people have some real shit going on, they just need that beauty for a minute. I don't doubt the importance of beauty, but whatever your beauty is might not be the same beauty. Humor, to me, is such a big part of it, too.
And it's interesting to incorporate that with sex. That's not done very often.
I mean, sex is fucking ridiculous. What is it? With the stick-it-in-the-hole or whatever. It's like, come on, it's hilarious. But it's also - and I've said this a lot in interviews - how we negate our own bodies. Every insult we give each other is a part of our body. You're an asshole? We all have an asshole. "You're a dick." "You cunt." It's all like, "Fuck you!" It's bodily functions. Shit face. Piss off. Those are just us. The worst insults come from our bodies. It's weird. You knee. You earwax. - [Gawker]
