A video registration of the live performance Be-Wildering by Jennifer Willet & Kira O’Reilly on May 12th, 2017 at the Theatrum Anatomicum of the Waag in Amsterdam.
During the final performance of ‘Trust Me, I’m an Artist’, O’Reilly and Willet brought a variety of living materials to the Theatrum Anatomicum of the Waag building in Amsterdam, questioning which species are allowed in which ecologies, the laboratory as ecology and the wilderness as lab. A specially formed local ethics committee reacted.
Willet and O’Reilly have performed together before and for ‘Trust Me, I’m an Artist’ their work again intersected, this time in a faux ethics review of different but parallel practices escaping the studio, the laboratory, and into the wilderness.
