Artist/comedian/distinctive mole haver Casey Jane Ellison (It’s So Important To Seem Wonderful, VFiles Status Update, What The F*shion) has a cult now. Sort of.
“My work is about life, equality, rumen (?), genderlessness, prettiness, societal ills, being chill, group sex,” she explains. “These things are life and they are my work.” A demented mix of Anna Wintour and The Source Family overlord, watch the video above and see Casey demonstrate to her four lovers/cultees that they don’t actually really, really want to leave. Stop trying to get away.
Casey Jane Ellison has shown work at at the New Museum, MoMA PS1 and the Museum of Art and Design in New York. She also curates Aboveground Animation, which presented a showcase at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles last year.
Watch her perform live at White Columns in New York this saturday, with another ANIMAL favorite, concrete comedian, visual artist, and writer Sean J Patrick Carney. It’s not necessarily about art. It’s just funny.
