A one-night performance featuring Megan Solis as Glory West.
“Megan Solis performs, Her New Cuckoo, as her love-sick blonde heroine, Glory West, on Halloween eve at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park. Glory West and her cuckoo bird. The cuckoo bird is a parasitic species of bird that survives by laying its eggs in the nests of other birds. The cuckoo’s eggs mimic the shape, size and even color of the invaded nests, a sneaky shape shifter. Once the cuckoo hatches, it instinctively pushes the other eggs from the nest, killing its competition for food and love. While the cuckoo can grow 3x larger than her surrogate mother, the mother will continue to feed her.
Megan Solis’ (b. 1990, San Antonio, TX) work splinters and bleeds into drawing, sculpture, video and performance. Recently obtaining her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Solis strives for a forceful intimacy with her audiences questioning the communal pursuit of happiness. Solis has authored and birthed her own heroine, Glory West, a hapless blonde Texan, who navigates themes of desperation and loneliness creating concerts of unrequited lust, precarious displays of confidence and self conscious portraits of love for her fans. Glory West’s odyssey encapsulates a monstrous feminine mystique, holding tightly to both self-inflicted hysteria and hapless horror. Solis has participated in the Hello Studio Residency in San Antonio, TX and the Arteles Artist Residency in Haukijärvi, Finland. She has exhibited her work at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, TX, The Invisible Gallery in Houston, TX, the McNay Art Museum and Revenant Gallery in San Antonio, TX and the Freedman Gallery in Pennsylvania.”
