Life of a Craphead

Life of a Craphead is the collaboration of Amy Lam and Jon McCurley. Their performance projects include King Edward VII Equestrian Statue Floating Down the Don (2017), an iconoclastic act of dumping into the Don River a replica of a decommissioned colonial statue from India that was erected in a public park in Toronto since 1969; The Life of a Craphead Fifty-Year Retrospective, 2006–2056 (Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, 2013), a speculative career retrospective of all the work they will ever make; and Free Lunch (2007), a public, anonymously advertised free lunch serving everything on the menu of a Chinese restaurant.
