Massive Hand Piñata & The Trial


A collaborative performance as part of GRAFT’s conceptual piñata group exhibition in the spring, the collective created a hand piñata representing each of the five members of the group. At the closing of the exhibition each piñata was destroyed in a manner consistent with its concept, and the group held a mock trial, reading an absurdist litany of crimes committed by each member, followed by a symbolic self-execution by miniature guillotine. The filling was revealed to be red gelatin and miniature king cake babies.
