Guilt, Gelt and Gefilte Fish, 2005 with Maya Suess
Performance, 90 minutes
Cutler and Suess presented the bestselling dime store primer Guilt, Gelt and Gefilte Fish in the window at Dadabase Gallery, Vancouver. Exploring the stereotypes and narrative potential of two distinct identity groups, the artists performed a series of tableaus in the form of book chapters that revealed the undoing of subjectivity, embodiment and caloric intake. Manifesting a two-hour installation Cutler and Suess sketched and rifted on pop culture, retail culture and cultural baggage.
