Harissa 1990-1992
Harissa

The Harissa performance was first shown as part of my degree presentation in Marseille. I was singing a simple song about Harissa, a hot chili and garlic sauce from Maghreb.

I was also introducing Fetish soap guns, magnetised by a local marabout.

At the end of the performance I attempted to sell tubes of harissa, videos and soap guns.

I got a 2.1 and sold a few guns.

I showed a translated and improved version of Harissa in the Sheffield media show, Sheffield, UK, in 1992.
