Mrs. Peanut Visits New York

1999, 6:05 min, color, sound

Mrs. Peanut Visits New York is a video portrait of the legendary late performance artist, fashion designer, and nightlife icon Leigh Bowery. Atlas' camera follows Bowery as he flamboyantly strolls through Manhattan's Meatpacking District, outrageously costumed in a self-made reinterpretation of "Mr. Peanut," the Planter's Peanut mascot. Bowery's molded full-bodysuit, accessorized with a floral print dress, top hat and transparent-heeled platform shoes, draws stares from onlookers. Peanut-related pop songs accompany him on the soundtrack.

Featuring: Leigh Bowery. Music Consultant: Scott Ewalt
