David Henry Brown Jr: Mirror Mirror Man

David Henry Brown Jr: Mirror Mirror Man
Thursday, July 9, 2020

With a flurry of death metal jams, a ramshackle stage of mylar, and a frenzied futurist uniform, David Henry Nobody Jr. welcomed us back with his newest Remsemblagè entitled Mirror Mirror Man. Providing a profound reflection on this historical moment, Mirror Mirror Man asked our audience on the Bowery to take more consideration for each other. “In order to survive we’ll have to reflect each other much more so than we are,” says Brown. “Thus the Declaration of Interdependence.”


Born 1967, lives and works in Brooklyn.
