Garis & Hahn Presents “King,” a New Performance Piece by Andrea Mary Marshall

Andrea Mary Marshall’s newest work explores iconography, identity, and the binary self by targeting two iconic figures from Japan and the United States: the Geisha, an apogee of femininity and beauty, as well as artistry and skill, and the rock ‘n’ roll icon Elvis, the embodiment of rebel-cool and individualistic freedom.

In this live fan painting performance, Marshall will explore both Elvis and the Geisha, drawing on a variety of art historical references — from Warhol’s repeating Elvis to Pollock’s drip paintings to the grunge vibe of 80s Soho. The performance, entitled “King” in homage to Elvis, will see the artist personifying both the king of rock ‘n’ roll and the Geisha, the two characters central to her new body of work in SACRED/ICONIC.
