Clock that Mug or Dusted is a conceptual and inspirational homage to feminist performance artists from Anna Halprin to Janine Antoni, focusing on the body as a canvas for social change, rebellion, and personal expansion.  As Jody Kuehner’s beloved drag/dance bio-fem icon, Cherdonna Shinatra, uses birthday cake and drag make-up to produce a work of lasting visual art, she hyperbolizes the normal humiliations of human existence.  Clock that Mug or Dusted draws on vintage feminist ideals and asks: What is present day queer/drag feminism?
