Ross Simonini: 
To Your Under

Heavy Breathing presents, To Your Under, by Ross Simonini, read by Audrey Vignoles. To Your Under is a brief exercise in pedal dexterity, neural elasticity, subliminal reality, and fluid personality. For this experience, you will need a chair, a sheet of paper, and a pen.


Ross Simonini is an interdisciplinary artist. Recently, he’s been living nomadically, mostly in California. He exhibits his work internationally, at various galleries, biennials and museums. For many years, he was a professional musician and now he makes music as ROOS and with the duo, NewVillager. His novel The Book of Formation is out with Melville House Books and he contributes dialogues to ArtReview, The Believer, and various other publications. He is currently the host of Subject Object Verb, a new podcast from ArtReview.
