This performance by Alberto Friggo employs a format he has been exploring recently. In these demonstrations he videos an action and then interacts with the recording. In this performance Friggo will lead the spectator in the making of gnocchi, potato pasta. While this preparation is recorded, it is replayed while the audience consumes the pasta. The final work is the two videos; one of the preparation and another of the consumption that is played side by side on monitors.

A literary and philosophical stroll through the labyrinthine aisles of Walmart, throughout which Faust, now a Walmart CEO, weighs and ponders the value of his soul. His task today is to oversee the new arrival of genetically modified homunuli and to make sure they are not overpriced. True to his character he reviews important company items such as evil, the perverse imagination, online wagers, corporate expansion and the need for greed. His eternal sidekick Mephisto, provides useful information on diabolical investment schemes and shoplifting. While Faust and Mephisto argue about the merits of Nietzche, on the occasion of the centennial of his death, a mischievous homunculus makes a run for it.

On July 29th, Reeve will present a lecture exploring the man-nature relationship from the perspective of the visual arts. Whilst Reeve pays respect to an understanding of the historical and social cration of the so-called man-nature understanding of the historical and social creation of the so-called man-nature paradox, indeed of the category 'nature' itself, her main aim in this lecture is to highlight both the pitfalls and potential strengths for contemporary artists taking the natural environment as their subject. The lecture will also include some explanation of Reeve's own methodology in creating performances and static works which explore nature and potential language forms laid in its services.
