Exhibition:
"The Cardoso Flea Circus Video"
Date
March 19 - April 19 1998
Description

"Since 1993 , Colombian artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso has painstakingly trained live fleas to walk on a tight rope, swing on a trapeze, dive into a thimble, and pull a locomotive 160,000 times
their weight. The Cardoso Flea Circus Video presents a recent
performance of this miniature three-ring circus with the artist as
charismatic ringleader. The video was made in collaboration with
video artist Ross Rudesch Harley and features original music by
Christian Marclay and Beo Morales."
