Screaming Project

Kate Gilmore’s “screaming” project combats “civilized” society’s control of its “functioning” members’ emotions, feelings, sounds, reactions and bodily functions by creating a space in which the public can express itself without restriction. In this exploration, Gilmore will concentrate on two major feelings which individuals are told to repress – anger and rage. Speakers and microphones will be set up inside a simple room; the voice of Gilmore will play on the speakers, screaming, yelling, and filling the space with rage. Microphones will be set up for individuals who enter the space to participate in this release of emotions. This “screaming” project allows us the brief pleasure of expressing this anger and letting somebody know that we are mad.
