Operation Catsuit is a performance series in which installation artist/handbag designer Ayana Evans wears a neon zebra print body stocking to various art events across New York City. At each event friends of the artist secretly video tape the reaction of patrons in the galleries and around the surrounding neighborhoods. Those with the strongest responses are interviewed after the artist has left the area. A handful of those who have absolutely no response at all are interviewed as well.
As the saying goes, “I don’t know art, but I know what I like” and Ayana Evans in a neon zebra print body stocking is a beautiful thing. But what about the woman I saw last week at the bus stop who was wearing similarly the same thing (Her’s were shorts)? Was she also doing a “performance series”? At the end of the day I really don’t care, but I’ll keep looking.
