Well, I read about a baby
that was wounded by a bullet
that was meant for her
The young soldier that shot her
had nothing against her.
- While we were waging WAR.

From Wagin' War, Billy X: Solo Set (CD).

This DVD is a hand made one-off, burned and not replicated. Billy X. comes by his overall anti-war and social justice themes honestly. He's witnessed the stupidity and horrors of war on two continents, the insides of a jailhouse looking out and the poverty that grips our world.

Midnight Babylon, 13' 00", An episode of Post Traumatic Stress, 1985.
Tiger Cage Sequence, 13' 30", Live Art focusing on the plight of political prisoners shot on Super 8 Film, original music: Fly Agaric, 1973.

X3C Polluted Water Wear



Lovely Laura Vinroot models the latest in Polluted Water Wear from the Curmano Collection. The X3C was inspired by Billy X. Curmano's 2,367.4 mile swim of the Mississippi River as both performance and environmental statement.

Like much of his output, the X3C is more satirical than practical, none-the-less it has been featured in several films and exhibited along with other Objects Collected and Created in the Course of a Swim.


© 1995 Billy X. Curmano

Mixed Media: Wood frame, fiberglass shell, shatter-proof plastic cockpit, shoulder length waterproof PVC gloves, stocking foot waders, brushed aluminum keel, stainless steel bolts and silicone seals.


Size: Small

Model: Laura Vinroot - Photographer: Jerry Blow
