“Three Characters In the Second Act is a vision of the home as a court of domestic deviance played out through the ecstatic surfaces of a bourgeois’ nightmare. A model 21st Century family of two parents and an insanely spoiled child, the father is the mother, the mother is the father, both the mother and the father are the father and the mother, while the infanta is also the infante but is free to be neither, or both, or something in between. Gioioso, Benevolente, & Solidale, respectively a seat and two cabinet, have no official status, but they are pure royalty in their total rejection of the suffocatingly facile codes of good taste, and they honour their freedom and divinely ordained power in the salacious union of sacred and profane, colour & form, wilfulness and gluttony, the digital and the crafted, the new and the old, and the bad and the naughty, refulgent in patterns of a new kind of regal family’s aesthetic liberty.
