The thunderous conclusion of a season’s worth of political hysteria, Cecilia Corrigan’s Motherland culminates with a performance of the piece’s full episodic cycle at ISSUE Project Room.

About

Compiling video works, performance, and collaborative psychoanalysis, the piece follows a serialized narrative premiered on BOMB Magazine, mirroring and responding in real time to the mommy issues of the 2016 American electorate.

A shadow narrative of the election, Motherland is a saga of our antihero Hillary Clinton as she struggles towards her presidential throne in a landscape that blends contemporary reality, Mount Olympus, and Jerry Seinfeld’s 1998 apartment.

The show invites the audience into the physical embodiment of the Motherland universe -- as sculptural and video works inhabit ISSUE's space in which they were born. The show begins with a soft opening of Corrigan’s sculptural series “H,” followed by a live performance and film screening of the Motherland opus that will reveal the startling conclusion -- tying the performance and video series together.

FEATURING Cammisa Buerhaus, Felix Bernstein, Sarah Krasnow, Andy Ragni, Gabe Rubin & more.
