Chloroquine Juggalo on the Loose @ Bless'ed Curse


Chloroquine Juggalo on the Loose presented at Bless'ed Curse, a parareal show curated by Underground Flower & Rhizome Parking Garage at, Autumn 2021.

Video, full HD, 02.41 min.

Chloroquine Juggalo wears Exoskeleton III and proceeds to a frenetic parkour through Athenian streets. He encounters random hieroglyphs, terrorizes Athenian taxi drivers, blocks the entrance of a building, gets worshiped by a crowd of random passersby, and vanishes into the dark of the Athenian cityscape. A speaker attached to his suit transmits a recorded gift of tongues from a speech by Paula White, Trump’s spiritual adviser: “Amanda aka ata rata tede paka sanda ata ambo osa kata rike eke banda ata rike tivi asa ta”.

Bless’ed Curse is a massively multiplayer, decentralized project organized by Underground Flower and Rhizome Parking Garage. Unfolding across the sprawling grounds + interior of a fantasy complex, 23 international artists and artist projects come together to co-create a liminal space that hovers just outside of reality. The result is a polyvocal chorus punctuated by both sullen and sublime intensities – ranging from performances to installations and digital work ❦
