House of Indulgence, Lavar Munroe, 2012
Performance

This performance occurred during the opening reception exhibiting my installation ‘House of Indulgence.’ Based on the notion of over indulgence, I took on the role of a coke addict in a state of hallucination. This piece was made in reference to childhood experiences of having to pass crack-houses occupied by crack users on my street on a daily basis. In becoming that person, I got the experience of helplessness and my audience became voyeurs, as they peered and in many ways ignored a self destructive person in an otherworldly, desperate and vulnerable state of being. My intention was to have this piece serve as a critique on the role of humanity in reference to individuals, like the drug addict, who was in dyer need of help well before having to turn to drugs. Society ignored him then and ignores him even more in his state of despiration.
