PASS, Anthea Black and Mikiki, June 21, 2014. NUIT ROSE. James Canning Gardens.

Many kinds of queer and material knowledge are constructed around the notion of passing, including elaborate forms of hair, self-presentation, drag, and costume. Queer bodies know and hold more than can be told, or spoken; for one night only we pass together, to each other, and celebrate the legacy of our decade-long friendship as a leather dyke and drag queen.

As part of Nuit Rose June 21, 2014, Anthea Black and Mikiki performed PASS in James Canning Gardens, a series of ritual passings that use hair and textile as central images for the
passing of time
passing the torch
passing away
passing of knowledge
passing of skill.

Together AB + MKK were joined by:
Gina Hunting (Seattle)
Kenny North (Toronto)
Alex Borovoy (Toronto)

PASS poster, limited edition silkscreen on paper in white with black and rose fade spot colour / black with grey, white and hot pink spot colour. 2014.
