Shaun SureThing

Laura Parnes is a super rad artist. She blew our minds with “Blood and Guts in High School” last year. Based on Kathy Acker’s highly regarded and widely banned book of the same name, BAGIHS was a collage like series of video installations and live actors playing out the themes of abduction, sex addiction prostitution and slave trade. 

County down is a bunch of episodes of a new narrative story in video format Parnes is gracing us with. This is a re-post from Johanna Fateman so for more details read below.

Teens in a gated community invent a new drug and their parents go crazy in COUNTY DOWN, a new episodic work by video artist LAURA PARNES.

I made new music (some with JD Samson) and helped select songs by Wynne Greenwood, Kisses, Lesbians On Ecstasy and Long Hind Legs for the soundtrack.
