Statement: Big Booty Bounce is a performance by J.P. Huckins in reaction to current, past and future events. It is an endurance piece. In a recent performance Huckins realized that he needed to work on his booty shaking. This performance will address this issue. This piece will start and end with a performance. He hopes his butt will be bigger on the final performance. For this performance J.P. Huckins will spend one hour each day the gallery is open trying to achieve an ass worth shaking.
