Glory Hole. (2012)

mirror, silk flowers, string.


Glory Hole consists of an architecture that obstructs through reflection and a performance that produces an object (seemingly endlessly, seemingly autonomously) outwards. Six hundred

synthetic Easter lilies are bound together and slowly excreted into the space of the art fair.


At the end of this process, the garland is undone and the process begins again.


Glory Hole reflects a moment where the cultural, the sentimental, and the spiritual become commercial commodity.





Installation and performance for the 2012 International Toronto Art Fair presented by SAVAC.
