Elevator Music 20: Sharon Hayes: I March In The Parade Of Liberty, But As Long As I Love You I'm Not Free"

For eight days between December 1, 2007 and January 12, 2008, Sharon Hayes walked from the New Museum at Bowery and Prince Streets in lower Manhattan to a different site of public address, stopping at street corners every few blocks and speaking a single, repeated love address to an anonymous and unnamed lover. Drawing from sources such as De Profundis, Oscar Wilde's letter to Lord Alfred Douglas, and slogans from early gay Liberation parades in New York City, the "love address" uses so-called private speech to get to the emotional imbrication of promise and disappointment in collective political action.

Part of a series of works by Hayes that deal with the relationship between personal and political desire and between love and politics, "I March In The Parade Of Liberty, But As Long As I Love You I?m Not Free", raises questions about war, the emotional landscape of protest actions and public speech.
