Thanks for keeping the greedy fingers of Black Rock City's worst
drama queen off the credit cards of the artist and crew. We're
grateful to you for helping make Zsu Zsu manifest in Black Rock
City, 2008, and we hope to see next year with a brand new art
A Photo Montage:
Who Is Zsu Zsu?
Painting by Killbuck
Her former lover dragged her to Burning Man. In an attempt to make
her happy, he built her a custom heart-shaped trailer, complete with
tanks of French air. She refuses to come out but demands your
attention and gifts.
She Hate Us?
At this art installation, Zsu Zsu blames you for
her discomfort and inconvenience. She also hates heat, dust, loud
music, art and “Heepies”. She has but one love...
Sketch by Killbuck
Her Pet Ferret, "Feelth"
snuck into Burning Man in one of Zsu Zsu’s beret boxes. By day he
kisses up to her perfectly pointed nose, then he sneaks out at night to
reveal his true animal nature. Hiding his swag and hotties, Feelth
endures his hangovers and denies Zsu Zsu’s accusations that he is
becoming a Burning Man enthusiast.
The Spiteful Tower
Zsu is feeling...
Zsu Zsu's Spiteful Tower is a replica of the Eiffel Tower, erected in
front of her trailer and festooned with red lights-- a bar graph "mood
meter" to indicate her current state of angst.
Participants are invited to push buttons that communicate different
messages to Zsu Zsu through her intercom in an attempt to influence her
When Zsu Zsu's mood
reaches its peak, the door opens and her robotized mannequin body leans
out. Zsu Zsu looks left. Zsu Zsu looks right. Zsu Zsu
spits and slams the door in your face.
A Peak Inside
From time to time and cued through participant interaction, Zsu Zsu
will pull the chain on her Tiffany lamp, allowing her silhouette to
appear through the trailer window. Using video projection, pre-recorded
acting and puppetry, her rants, tantrums, and complaints will be acted
out along with her break-ups and make-ups with Feelth.
Burn Her Out
On playa Satuday, an eviction notice will be
placed on Zsu Zsu’s pretty pink trailer. “Come out by dark
tonight or we’ll burn you out”. Would we dare? Must she
join our community? Do we even want her to? Find out the
thrilling conclusion at Burning Man 2008!
