1. Exhibition:
    Come Inside. Me.
    July, 2012

    Presented by Dashboard Co-Op

    My grandfather, PeeWee Kaczynski, was a barber in Massachusetts. In the 1950s he had a barber shop in the lobby of a hotel in Webster, MA. John F. Kennedy, a senator at the time, came in for a haircut. There is now a Dunkin' Donuts where the hotel once stood.

    This is my first time shaving with a straight razor. My grandfather sent me the razor and gave me vague instructions about how to shave with it. I then had to look on YouTube for tutorials to fill in the gaps. Turns out, he forgot to send the whetstones to sharpen the blade properly, so it didn't have a sharp enough edge to actually shave my face. I had to switch to a new disposable razor to finish.

    Cast in the sink are my trimmed beard whiskers from the performance. A hole was cast in the resin to allow water to pass through. As the only bathroom in the exhibition house, viewers washed their hands over the sculpture.

  2. Breathe Together
    Installation: My Grandmother’s Oxygen Tubes, Video
    2012

    My grandmother, Rosemarie Kaczynski, died on February 18, 2012, from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). These are her leftover oxygen tubes. Each tube equates to two months of life, had she lived. The video is my grandmother in hospice the day before she died. The breath sounds are mine. At this point she had extreme difficulty getting enough air to her lungs. I wanted to help her breathe, so I recorded myself breathing for her.
