(I Could Go On Singing) Over the Rainbow

Photo credit: Jannica Honey Photography
 

In a unique individual moment of undivided love and attention, FK Alexander takes your hand, fixes your gaze, and sings to you alongside a distorted recording of Judy Garland’s final recording of “Over the Rainbow,” played through a wall of noise by the abrasive Glasgow-based noise band Okishima Island Tourist Association.

This performance is part of No Safety Net

Her ritualized approach, performed repeatedly as a one-on-one experience for self-selecting audience members, is “an intimate, interactive live experience…desperate, moving, distressing, and beautiful too.” (The Guardian) Based in Glasgow, FK Alexander is a performance artist whose work is concerned with issues of wounds, recovery, aggressive healing, radical wellness, industrialization, and noise music, an “outsider music” that still exists on the fringe. Her work endeavors to create a therapeutic space through ritual, inviting others to join her in a very personal experience.
