Frame our ears open

Live performance with voice, gag, bullhorn



ARTIST NOTE (for Frieze version)

The artist’s mouth is gagged yet ready to express with a bullhorn. The muzzled mouth, as a leaky trap and portal, persists in singing daily a new protest supplemented with extemporaneous riffs on everything from a child’s trust to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, thus consciously challenging her audience.  The two songs that Choksi always sings are Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Linda Perry of 4 Non Blonde’s “What’s Up.”
