JEFF BADGER:The Re-Animation of Dead Tissue & Gorilla in the City.

Jeff Badger, The Re-Animation of Dead Tissue, 2002
performance, The Festival of the Sacred & Profane,
Peaks Island, Maine, 2002

Description: The room is set up as laboratory / hospital with various electronic and medical devices set up on tables, along with test tubes, IV bags, beakers and surgical equipment. In the center of the room is the GORILLA, chained down to a stretcher covered in white fabric. In the lab is DR. BARON VON BANANA, who is using the equipment to try to re-animate the lifeless gorilla. As he shocks, injects and operates on the GORILLA, it occasionally spasms, wakes, roars and attacks the DR., who then beats it down with his clipboard.
