Athens Sweet Piece, 2018 / Grind your bones, 2018 / The Art of Eating, 2017
Hanging carcasses of lambs, squeaking pigs, chains, splatters of fake blood, Kiss-style make-up, and ritualistic incantations in B-movie settings featuring a platinum blonde in agonizing martyrdom. Actually is a character straight out of the pulp comic genre. Her at first view self-victimized persona goes through endless tortures or features as the priestess in gory mass rituals. Patriarchy, as per her band’s name, is her post-feminist target, which she attacks with her videos and performances that take unexpected turns and reverse the plot. Glam-goth, S/M, vampiric, medieval, fashion icon, rock star––Actually’s constantly shape-shifting art persona is deliberately hard to pin down, refusing to settle or be projected into a single identity. AB6 hosts Actually’s video clip shot in Athens for the occasion and a live performance.
