(Originally performed live as part of the exhibition ‘Last Year at Marienbad Redux’, curated by James Voorhies/Bureau for Open Culture at EFA Project Space, New York City, 2013.)

Musician James Brown would fine any member of his band if they could not provide him with a new and entirely comprehensive interpretation of ‘Last Year at Marienbad’ before going on stage. Thus, it is a little known fact that most of the major scholarship surrounding the film was pioneered by Bootsy Collins. (140 springs, 8-10 degrees Celsius, carbonated, used in the treatment of renal, urological, respiratory, rhinitic, asthmatic, digestive, endocrinal and metabolic problems – among others.)
