Sexual Fortune Telling
Sexual Fortune Telling is a one-on-one performance that uses intersubjective ritual & erotic energy to make a highly accurate prediction about the visitor’s sexual future (about 6-12 months after the date of the reading). The Magic is real. However, the reading is cleverly framed as an art piece so that everyone can just relax & enjoy the experience (each reading lasts about 10-15 minutes)

At a New Year’s Eve party I was looking for an avenue of escape (I hate crowds) when I discovered a small room that was begging to have fortunes told in. I promptly set up a space to tell guests’ sexual futures for the coming year, thus allowing me to cultivate a performative practice while avoiding the party. It’s a practice I have since followed up on & developed.
The photos below are from a Sexual Fortune Telling performance at Arteles Creative Center, where i was fortunate enough to be a resident in May 2014, & where the performance was first developed, & at Karada House, where i performed it in 2019.
