The Mammal Gallery says
“….I want to agree with you but you are making it really hard for me” is a new text based performance by P_A_C, that is born in the middle of the atlantic ocean.

The performance is about never having being bought a bottle of whiskey, and that my mother bribed my passport. It’s got everything to do with kissing a gorilla and that my grandparents are Yemenite Jews. It’s because there is always a little box to tick and that it never asks what colour your discharge is.

It’s a journey and you will learn that ‘A’ started for the sake of sanity and ‘Z’ began as it has to end somewhere. Everything we say is true and everything you hear can be held against you. We have your story to tell you, about who we are from, what I fuck and where we will die.

P_A_C was born on October 8, 2015, on the Internet. It is made up of A & Z who produce multi disciplinary work through performance, video and text. They borrow, steal and lie in an attempt to understand how to function as a unified self.

P_A_C takes an ethnographic approach to systems of behaviour that are passed from one individual to another by non-genetic means. Examining populist doctrines, bureaucratic protocols and by embracing the death of privacy. In this manner creating environments to stimulate dialogue and creating dialogues to stimulate environments.
