The Function of an Imaginary
The concept for my 2020 thesis exhibition, that never happened (insert pandemic), is structured around the idea of a wonky cathedral. Patrons enter the liminal space of a 'narthex,' through an entrance flanked by floating, upside-down furniture, before entering the 'nave.' Neon light, projection, sweet smells and sounds, layer the central space with a multi-sensory experience. Tucked behind hidden passages, viewers discover the realm of manufactured magic-making materials, where visitors can purchase their own salvation. The power to emancipate oneself becomes evident.
