Title: 201 N Wayfield St

Creator Commentary:

This experimental piece attempts to blur the line between the private and public space, creating and exploring an uncomfortable uncertainty. It twists between a young woman engaging with her own sexuality, and her neighbors grilling dinner in their yard. It does this in such a way that it becomes hard to tell when the public ends, and the private begins. This confusion is heightened by the inclusion of Danish desserts (Rødgrød med fløde, which is a red berry porridge with cream), song lyrics (Jeg har ik’ lavet penge, jeg har lavet damer… from a song about prioritizing sex over money) and a common sentence, often yelled in a place where the words will echo (Hvad drikker Møller? Øller, øller, øller… The question is which beverage does Møller drink, the answer, thrown back by the echo, is beer).
