I MIGHT AS WELL BE A LEMON
I Might as Well be a Lemon is a 50 minuet performance based on the structure of a play, in two parts. It follows the Character Charlotte, whom finds herself in situations where she feels like a lemon, whilst talking to men, women, and family members. She finds herself talked over, explained too, yet finds it hard to confront people. The set design is all made by Gash, imitating real objects as cardboard and plaster painted props, as well as painted backdrops for each scene.
The documentation of the Performance I Might As Well Be A Lemon is in the form of a Behind the Scenes documentary. The film is inspired by a male artist Adam Green’s behind the scenes documentary, which he made for his film "Aladdin."(2016) Regardless of being a fan of Adam Green's work, I wanted to adopt the same tone as his documentary, in which he describes himself as a genius, and the founder of hand made aesthetic,
"he's really doing something, thats really, never been done before.." -
Natasha Lyonne, actress in Aladdin, by Adam Green
As I have a slightly similar aesthetic, instead of using the artists who performs for the performance to act in the behind the scenes video, I used their voices and the props used in the performance take their place, to emphasise the ridiculousness of male artists admiration.
