Shall we play dead?
Shall we run?
Shall we find the exit?
Shall we continue to dream?
Shall we honor the fallen?
Shall we storm the gates?
Shall we capture the flag?
Shall we wait?
Shall we scratch the surface, or dig deep?
Shall we create another territory?
Shall we hold hands?
To carry the weight…
The street the night the hand, extending to float to collapse to exit the center, only to come up again to balance between the vague idea and the concrete form, to lose to search to find the softness of nothing, and everything
Shall we turn the other way?
Shall we strike?
Shall we refuse to pay the rent?
Shall we build an underground culture, secret?
Brandon LaBelle is an artist, writer and theorist. His artistic work explores questions of social life and cultural agency, using sound, performance, text and sited constructions. This results in situational and contextual projects that create forms of intervention in public spaces, acts of translation and archiving, as well as micro-actions aimed at the sphere of the (un)common.
