A newspaper cut-out of a Beyonce gesturing is multiplied. In her hands, a microphone is raised to her lip-syncing mouth. The title of this work is the star’s verbatim response to why she had no choice but to outsource her singing to a pre-record at the presidential inauguration. The image is overlaid with overblown text and acts as an advertisement for Spooner’s lm And you were wonderful, on stage.
