Artist Alicia Framis, The Lost Astronaut

.

That giant disk in the sky that alternates between a bloated thick
deep-yellow splotchy mass and at other timesĀ  a fine white fingernail
floating in the ether, the nocturnal lighthouse guiding lovers hands
and military sneak attacks as well…. ahhhhhh…. the moon.
.
Unbeknownst to myself, the moon is also one of the last stalwart
strongholds of sexism in modern life. Artist Alicia Framis, aka the
Lost Astronaut, informed me that a woman has never set foot on the
moon. Tackling this issue with equal parts beauty and insanity, Framis
has chosen to protest this sad fact by purchasing a used cosmonaut
suit from Russia and roam the streets of New York for the duration of
Performa.
