PEESHOOTER
2017

This performance is part of the GREENER PASTURES series.

Combining a glass gun-shaped candy dispenser from 1935 and an army issued FUD (Female Urination Device), Liss LaFleur has fabricated a plastic toy-like pistol that she can use to urinate through as a form of uncomfortable playfulness and as a survival tactic in PEESHOOTER (2017).

 

About this work she states, "...as a queer woman in the south, guns are often considered normal and accepted more than my own body and existence." This work is installed with a short looping video performance, a collection of 4 peeshooters, each individually suspended with neon as if they are being held at attention without the human body, 4 failed attempts at producing the Peeshooter in glass, and an instructional video.
