In a stunning triumph for general overall weirdness and local cultural effervescence, the events of Warhol Icon come to save you from your straitjacket of boredom with performances inspired by model German singer Nico, the likes of which you may have only experienced in your wildest and/or wettest dreams. Geneva Jacuzzi’s fractured journey into the synthesized self collides with confessional Norwegian chanteuse Jenny Hval. Voluptuously horrified Kembra Pfahler pukes out quality performance artistry while Jesy Fortino (Tiny Vipers) jumps on acoustic guitar like so many Gordon Lightfoots. Nao Bustamante projects enigmatic visuals and Vaginal Davis works into her performance a screening of New Wave filmmaker Philippe Garrel’s 1972 La Cicatrice Intérieure. This, the film for which star Nico composed her album Desertshore, is best summed up by Nico herself: “A queen finds a kingdom wherever she goes.”
