Along 14th Street from Avenue C to the Hudson River, NYC
Procession is a durational drag performance walk inspired by Jean Carroll, the bearded lady of Coney Island. After fifteen years of courtship with John Carson, who would not marry Carroll because of her beard, she removed it––transitioning from bearded lady to tattooed lady. For Procession, the artist dresses in a kind of wedding drag and walks the length of 14th Street. This walk is in solidarity with those who make a body and life of their own design despite the social pressures to normalize, assimilate, and conform.
