Event description



We are thrilled to invite you to RSVP to Brian Fuata's new email and IRL performance STORY SENT (2024), commissioned by Cement Fondu for the upcoming exhibition, TMI, 1 June - 28 July, 2024.

STORY SENT (2024) is a new iteration of the earlier email artwork The Dead Sea Salt and The Quiet Man with his camera in the toilet, first performed in 2012. In the original email performance, audience members were mentioned in/as part of the Subject line. Within the body of the email, two intimate anecdotes were placed side-by-side, one where the artist participates in a pop-up skin care demonstration in Bondi Westfield and the other where he is recorded having sex at a beat by a stranger in the neighbouring cubicle.

For this new iteration, STORY SENT (2024), audiences will RSVP to receive four emails in total, with each epistle becoming a score for a live structured improvisation that will take place in Cement Fondu's gallery space across four dates during the TMI exhibition, beginning at the launch on Saturday 1 June, 7pm. The remaining three live improvisations will draw upon the evolving script within Fuata's emails and will be performed at Cement Fondu on Saturday 15 June 4pm, Thursday 4 July 6pm, and Saturday 27 July 4pm.
