An Interview with Paul Tucker, a performance artist who lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
Question: So what does your latest piece involve?
Paul: Essentially, I put my hands into hollowed-out cabbages and pummel passers-by.
Q: What underlying themes are you exploring in this work?
Paul: Well, I always prefer to leave it open to interpretation. For me, the people I assault represent the regrets of my past, whilst the cabbages symbolise my inability to deal with emotion. I think we are all a little 'cabbaged-in,' deep down.
Q: How do you get your teeth as white as your hair?
Paul: It's an old family recipe. I grind down the bones of small children and apply the paste before going to bed at night. Old granny Tucker used to go through a primary school classroom a week. I tell ya, when she spun around, ships knew they were getting too close to shore.
