We can't think of anything we'd be interested in doing for five hours straight on a Sunday, so big ups to our friend Brendan Fowler for taking on this ambitious task as part of Performa 09 (whose massive/awesome schedule is located here). Of course, there is context: he'll be performing at RENTAL Gallery, where he's exhibiting his remarkable solo show of gianormous object-based silkscreens—photographs in cracked plexiglass and giant wood frames—and the drums will act as a sort of soundtrack and an experience unto itself, like Brendan is in fact the installation. If you're a fan of his awesome, motivational music as BARR, you should definitely roll through because he's focusing more on visual art right now. Also, do you think his hands will bleed? We hope not, we feel protective of them.
