St. Saviour's Emergency Private Shelter
Conversation and short video
Rather than giving a speaker centered presentation, I would like to invite the audiences to participate to create the event.
The audiences can decide which works they would like to discuss by choosing from a variety of print outs displayed around the room, and offer their interpretations of the work. As a result, the conversation is more based on the audience’s curiosity and is open to chance and spontaneity.
In addition to this, a 3min-video, formerly part of the St. Saviour’s Emergency Private Shelter piece, will be shown in her studio. The work originally consisted of a short video and two installed pieces that used existing architectural features of a church space to create the illusion that the church’s crypt was an emergency shelter. The infomercial is promotional and parodic as it emphasizes the tremendous benefits and the aspirational qualities of living in a hole in the ground.
