Shameless Light

Shameless Light is an ongoing performance that invites femme identified queer women to read love letters they have written, under red neon megaphones. Shameless Light privileges love as a generative, unruly and potentially radical act. It is a venue for queer desire.

The reading environment includes a 9 minute loop of our love letter to Chantal Ackerman; Kitchen Circle for Ackerman. Readers stand on a rug made of felt, hide and paint. After the readings are complete, we clear the stage for a screening of SOTD (Strangely Ordinary This Devotion).

Shameless Light was initiated in 2015 by Dani and Sheilah ReStack in Carizzozo, New Mexico. Since then, letters have been written, and read, by community members at the Wexner Center in Columbus, OH, Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY, Leslie Lohman Project Space in NY, Athens, OH and UIC, Chicago, IL.
