Painted Ladies is an attempt by Drag Queen Oozing Gloop & Tattooist Jose Vigers to apply their shared craft of forced transformation to a social space rather than just some wicked bodies. Spanning over the course of one weekend it will involve a variety of different artistic practices.It is to be an interdisciplinary and intergenerational endeavour to offer ample opportunities for discussion, relaxation, stimulation and celebration for those who’ve ever inhabited a problematic personhood.
This is explicitly with the intent to re-appropriate the marginal glory of Queer ornamentation and remember whom it adorned. We wish to deploy a Camp commonality to mobilise others on sensibility and style rather than prescriptive notions of “community” and avoid the exclusion inherent in such applications.
