"Big As Life"

The performances and films of tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE are abrasive and conceptually witty documents drawn from details of his personal life. You Haven't Heard the Record, You Haven't Read the Book, NOW! Don't See the Movie! (c. 1989) condenses years of record listening, book reading and art viewing into thirty cacophonous single-frame minutes, and the Regular 8 Subtitles (c. 1982) is a droll series of armchair responses to an endless stream of Grade Z movie footage taken from TV. [this description is completely inaccurate]


The resolutely underground tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE mimics and incorporates porn in Balling Tim Ore is Best (c. 1985) to confront sexual arousal and its implications as prompted by salacious images
