Cirkit of Mythos is a group of 5 Dallas/Fort Worth artists (including Ryder Richards). For this exhibit the group has developed “Carne-val,” a one-night-only performance playing with stereotypes and loss of dignity as a cultural ritual.
Carne-val as part ofThe Altered State Fair —Carne-val STATEMENT —
Carnivals, sideshows, attractions, and bizarre decadence. You must be paying for the experience, because we all know cotton candy is 90% air and you threw up that funnel cake after a ride on the Whirligig. Oh, and don’t forget that $45 stuffed animal proving you can throw a baseball. Might want to throw it in the wash, there’s still a bit of funnel cake on it.
Chaddy Dean Smith and Andrew Douglas Underwood
