Would you give your number to a stranger? What about hundreds of them? In Intercourse with the Artist, Georgia Banks does just that, making herself available to you as friend, confidante and intimate.
Merging the private and the public, Banks transforms her life into autobiographic theatre for 48 hours, through a series of conversations with strangers. You are given a phone number. You can call whenever you want during those two days.
An opportunity to ‘eavesdrop’ on Banks’s daily life, this performance leaves nothing off limits. Making herself as vulnerable with strangers as she would be with her closest friends, Banks also becomes confessor: an anonymous, faceless receptacle for your hopes, desires, fears and regrets. You can tell her anything. Your secret’s safe with her.*
