'The Harvest' by Mauricio Muñoz and Andrew Roberts at Delaplane, San Francisco



In their newest body of work, longtime partners, Tijuana-based artists Mauricio Muñoz and Andrew Roberts collaborate for the first time to conceive The Harvest, a musical romantic comedy situated in an otherworldly and fantastical realm. In the pilot episode, presented as a video installation for their exhibition at Delaplane, Muñoz and Roberts play a couple of gay ogres hiding and living peacefully in the woods amidst a land where segregation between magical creatures is the norm.

Having a flame with you


is even more fun than going to Middle-Earth, Narnia, and the Land of Oz 
or being nauseous at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade 
partly because in our blue, pink dress we look like a better and sexier Peter Pan 
partly because of our love for each other, partly because of our love for butterbeer 
partly because of the purple orchids that sprout between the rocks we split open in the mines partly because of the pregnant ogre queens that secretly smiled when the elemental fairies carried us into the fog 
it is hard to believe when we’re together that purity 
is anything other than a human-made parasite 
an unpleasantly long-lasting technology 
somehow dissolved as we drift back and forth between each other 
so our bellies sweat and glitter to lull our fear to sleep 
and we no longer care to wonder why in the world, from the Southern Whispering Forest to the Northern Mountains of Death 
anyone at all could place their gaze upon us and still dare to ask is this love? 

* Written in dialogue with Frank O’Hara’s Having a Coke With You
