VENERATION #2: The House Not Meant To Stand

a performance installation

VENERATION #2: The House Not Meant To Stand is the second in a series of visual poems responding to a particular passing or exodus in the life of the artist. Performed by members of the SCAD community, the performance took place between twin altars modeled after Christian altarpieces. While one rests in shadow and light, the other becomes a sculptural canvas for a chorus of moving mouths, creating a mosaic of contemporary language within an ancient liturgy - a memorial to the ephemeral nature of body, mind, and memory.
