Whose Jizz Is This

Kunstverein in Hamburg presents the first institutional solo exhibition Whose Jizz Is This? of the musician and artist Peaches. On the twentieth anniversary of her stage debut, Peaches takes a trans-disciplinary and transgressive approach to expanding the format of “the exhibition” by creating a living organism. 

Whose Jizz Is This? (WJIT) takes Peaches’ many-sided practice — including her musical productions and live performances — as the starting point to present sculptural, photographic, film and text works in an immersive environ- ment. All works have been created for this exhibition. Ever adept at boundary blurring, Peaches has created a show that combines live performance, musical intervention, visual art and historical reflection. Taking a bold and unexpected approach to the topics of sex, feminism, queerness, gender, and new millennium politics, Peaches calls her WJIT presentation “a deconstructed musical in 14 scenes.” 

At the heart of this presentation are the “Fleshies,” who have renamed themselves as such to rewrite their narrative, break away from humans and human interactions, do away with words like sex toys and Masturbators in a quest to find sexual equality among themselves. 

The exhibition is developed in cooperation with Inter- nationales Sommerfestival at Kampnagel.
