Justin Kemp was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin and now lives in Northampton, Massachusetts. For the most part, his life reminds him of a 1996 American romantic comedy-drama sports film with Jerry McGuire (except without all the yelling). His art is kind of like listening to someone speak with a British accent, because at first, it sounds somehow smart, but after a few minutes it just sounds funny. Especially performances like ‘Removing Friends poster from the ceiling using a Gopher reaching tool’, ‘Different Basses’ or ‘A pessimistic half empty glass of water spills optimistically’ seem almost equally funny and confusing.
