This participatory performance, explores the witch's nose, an ambivalent symbol of women's abjection and power in the face of misogyny. The performance riffs on Andy Warhol’s famous Before and After (1961) painting, which he based on crude, popular advertisements for nose job surgery aimed at women. Kay Turner has reversed the advertisement to suggest that a more desirable transformation takes the tiny, upturned "pretty" woman's nose and magically substitutes it with a witch's hooked honker. The evening includes a her-story lecture on the witch’s nose, a scent test, and an opportunity to see yourself anew, photographed before and after with a witchy nose substituting your own. Co-starring Maxine Henryson and Rosina Lardieri with assistance from Erick Benavides and Lily Koppel.
