Marsian De Lellis


“The piece, which questions on a cosmic level our artificial divide between the animate and the inanimate, has the appealing, droll humor and structural unity of a David Sedaris story.” —LA Weekly

Created and performed by Marsian De Lellis and developed with director Michele Spears, Object of Her Affection is an unconventional love story that follows the emotional journey of one Andrea Lowe, after she has fallen, mysteriously, from a building. De Lellis endearingly demonstrates their artistic passion for animating the inanimate, as they craft the story of a heroine whose Object Sexuality reveals the way that objects quietly hold multiple personalities, and sometimes multiple hearts.
From her first love—a baby’s blanket—to adolescent dalliances with a bad-boy hunting rifle, Object of Her Affection tackles Andrea’s romantic evolutions, including big-time infatuations with high-profile structures like the Berlin Wall and Golden Gate Bridge. With great care and warm humor, De Lellis complicates notions of sexual identity, while exploring the synesthetic relationship between objects and humans.
