Celebrate the opening reception of Desecration: A Process with Nefertiti’s Kiss, a burlesque performance by Leila Delicious and Dizzy Marquee. Leila and Dizzy confront American Egyptomania and the taboo of queerness through gender-bending, movement, and grape leaves.
Performances will take place at 7:00 PM & 8:00 PM.
Batikh Batikh is proud to present its third exhibition at AUTOMAT Collective. Desecration: A Process is the first solo exhibition of work in Philadelphia by Coptic/Irish-American artist, Caitlin Abadir-Mullally. Desecration: A Process mimics the field of archaeology in three parts: the Research Phase, Excavation Site and Artifact Collection. This series of interactive sculptures mimics two kinds of desecration in the erasure and disposal of queer life and history and government-funded grave robbing in North Africa.
