INSUFFERANCEIVABLE was a performance opening the exhibition POPOCCCCATEPETL - NO ANIMALS at 7EVENTH GALLERY. Featuring artists Christine Small, Carrie McGrath and Caleb Shea, INSUFFERANCEIVABLE responded to the sycophants, dilettantes and philistines we all become within the formalism of the myopic art-world.

The exhibition was a collaboration in willing to exhibit together, have our individual works respond to each of our aesthetic choices informing placement within the gallery space and the filming of a video for projection on Gertrude Street Collingwood.

If you search for tenderness it isn't hard to find.

You can have the love you need to live.

But if you look for truthfulness,you might just as well be blind.

It always seems to be so hard to give.

I can always find someone to say they sympathize.

If I wear my heart out on my sleeve.

But I don't want some pretty face to tell me pretty lies.

All I want is someone to believe.

I can find a lover.

I can find a friend.

I can have security until the bitter end.

Anyone can comfort me with promises again.

I know.



When I'm deep inside of me, don't be too concerned.

I'll ask for nothing while I'm gone.

But when I want sincerity, tell me where else can I turn.

Because your your the one that I depend upon.

Honesty is such a lonely word.

Everyone is so untrue.

Honesty is hardly ever heard.

And mostly what I need from you.
