Martha Wilson, “THUMP”

Renowned performance artist and feminist Martha Wilson has developed a new piece around Donald Trump. Although her politically related works have involved first ladies, Wilson said that Trump was too juicy a target to pass up. Wilson tells New York Observer that her performance aims for the intersection of “hilarious and the awful”, which is similar to a scene from Faulkner’s Absalom Absalom in which a character is raped with a corncob. Sounds about right for a Trump presidency.
