Fuck Was I
A project by Stefano W. Pasquini
Curated by Raphael Cornford & William Bass
Fuck was I is the title of a song by Jenny Owen Youngs, a singer/songwriter that I first encountered on an advert on MySpace. MySpace was the Facebook before Facebook, in case you didn’t know. All I can remember was this picture of a nice young girl, smartly dressed, crossing the road in a slightly unbalance movement. I looked for the image on the net and I couldn’t find it anymore. I think it was 2007, o something around that time.
Anyway, I clicked on the banner and this really heartwarming song starts, with the sweet notes of a cello playing. The words are harsh: “love grows in me like a tumor”. Ten years on I still love that tune so much that it’s still my alarm clock song, and I decided I should title an exhibition that way.
Join us Friday 10/6 for Stefano W. Pasquini’s Fuck Was I. This series of works is based in anagrams inspired by Jenny Owens Youngs‘ 2003 MySpace™ hit “Fuck was I,” iterated through various and electic media including locally sourced rock, paintings stolen by Italian customs agents, drawings, collages, video, zines, and large inkjet/fabric flags.
As always, come prepared for camaraderie, refreshments, and warm conversation among friends and new faces alike.
