Move over J.Lo and Cher! Miss Chief Eagle Testickle has a new sexy video of her club track: Dance to Miss Chief - a playful critique of German fascination with North American “Indians” that is guaranteed to make you want to get up and shake your booty! This remix of contemporary and vintage footage celebrates Miss Chief’s on-screen romance with leading man, Winnetou, fictitious “Indian” from Karl May’s German Westerns.
The opening reception will be accompanied by a performance by Laura Ortman. “Ortman’s music is known for compositions that alternate lyrical intimacy with layered improvisation, often experimenting with four-track tapes and remixing her own audio catalogue in an evolving dialogue with herself. “I try and create music for your most solo moments,” she says…Her practice does have a strong connection to visual art, going back to before she moved to New York in 1997. “I used to try to create painting and installation work about being isolated, of being singular,” she says.”- Artnews, Ben Davis, May 23, 2019.
