Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5 from 7pm to 10pm

Once upon a time, in this avant-garde fairytale known as STRANGELAND, BUNNi and GOATFACE find their two worlds collide while exploring the superficial construct of reality. To celebrate their new co-dependent relationship, BUNNi and GOATFACE welcome visitors to a sweet but psychotic housewarming party into their handmade dreamlike installation at OLLY OLLY. They may not always be home, but will leave the TV on so visitors can still be entertained by their ridiculous behavior while away on new adventures. With a perverse humor and provocative pleasure this performance duo ambiguously swerves between parody and enactment, investigating the collision and collusion of fantasy to form a new reality of consciousness.

STRANGELAND is a performance duo, made up of BUNNi (ANDiLAND) and GOATFACE (STRANGE LENS), that explores the superficial construct of reality. ANDiLAND works with a variety of media to create her campy but whimsical immersive installations and performances. Utilizing a perverse humor she invites viewers past the looking glass of reality down the rabbit hole of her own personal female psyche, attempting to assault the norms of acceptable female behavior to subversive ends. STRANGE LENS is a mixed media artist who explores the world of dreams, nightmares and the obscure irrational of the subconscious. She recreates the experience and atmosphere of disorientation and disconnect caused by excessive vivid dreams and re-enacts them through video, installation and performance.
