mike baby please

mik phillips + tori breen



mike baby please is a willing reckoning of consequentials, shifting through wrestling, yelling, nestling, grunting, + fucking; there will be tears. seeking out, welcoming, + mourning hitting where it hurts most, we enter — the wrestling smackdown that will ruin us more than we know.

About the Artist

mik (they/he) is a white, trans, queer + fat multidisciplinary artist currently based on Lenni Lenape land. their research deeply investigates how queerness inhabits performative structures + how in these spaces, vulgarities exist in simultaneity with notions of intimacy, care + tenderness. he lives inside a constant welling; a need for quivers, heaving, uncontrollable laughter, sobs, + indiscriminate violence guides them into creating temporary worlds that are maniacally unkempt and grotesquely forgiving. tori (they/he/she) is a white, queer, trans artist in so-called Philadelphia, on Lenni Lenape land. playing with obsession, pleasure, shame, humor + aggression, they devise circumstances for sensory satisfaction + physical risk. committed to work that is unextractable from this moment, they create physical + emotional landscapes that are precisely current, a way of honoring prolonged global, local, + personal crisis. tori is learning about dancing at the edges of the world. together, mik + tori traverse the extremes of aggression and tenderness; exploring care, hypersexuality, and the grotesque while challenging notions of butch relationality.
