Tender Picking

Mortal and pestle between my teeth
————I meant mortar

Making a paste between the morals
————I meant molars

Either way, I make
a paste of you.
— Tracie Jiggetts

 

Tender Picking is a performative installation that celebrates metabolism as an act of wanton love. Through the fits and starts of an unexpected  romance, the  viewer  is  invited into an  all-consuming affection  that  is  both  tender  and  savage.   A radio-style drama, performed  by  Theresa Columbus  and  Tracie Jiggetts, chaperon participants to an invasive but amorous end.

The following radio drama was originally recorded as two monologues, performed by Tracie Jiggetts and Theresa Columbus, and played on headphones as visitors ate. Here, the tracks are spliced together in a non-linear dialogue.
