Tentacular Spectacular

Oozing Gloop

A swirling gloopy wave of neon greens, blues and purples surrounds a series of photo-collage images including green jellyfish, mushrooms, straws and analogue televisions. There are smaller images of Oozing Gloop in different poses on the television screens and in the background of the waves. On the left side is a picture of Oozing Gloop, a drag artist with a black-bob wig, green face, green snake eyes, gold leaf eye make-up, fuchsia lip and gold bullring. Gloop is wearing a bronze corset with gold embroidery, with a high-neck coral neck-piece that drips over exposed breasts with coral roses covering the nipples. Gloop has a salty expression and is holding their hands as if mid-sentence.

Slide into a multi-sensory, psychosexual swamp inhabited by transgressive drag frog Oozing Gloop and some of her many fae-like friends.  

Is it just me, or has the world totally lost its mind? As our climate collapses into a pre-humanity, primordial sludge, come bolthole into the butt holes of the sharpest savants around and see what these gender-non-conforming, neurodivergent drag artists have to offer. 

Be amazed, appalled and enthralled as together we wander through this installation of performances and cursed objects from a new anthropomorphic age… it’s frog-memes, it’s goblins, it’s fashion baby! And all underground critters are welcome. 

Oozing Gloop describes herself as “the world’s premier green, autistic drag queen”. She has completed 500 miles of queer pilgrimage through the co-ordinates of her unconscious. This was the furnace that melded six years of disappointing study with a sublime cabaret practice, creating a queer spectacle exploring Awe; the awful, the awesome and the autistic. Her interdisciplinary practice seeks to put a very particular voice upon a powerful pedestal of the universal subject and seeks to make society assimilate her. In the same way as society expects him to assimilate it. Troublesome, camp and revolting.
