Farewell to my installations "Narrow Door," "Playtime" and "Empty Shells", as well as Lauren Carrera's wonderful creation "The Revelation: Everything That Rises Must Converge." Sigh - everything has now come down from the exhibit. Yes, it may re-emerge at other sites, but at Gallery 114 it had its own site specific identity. Once work is installed, it becomes its own thing, it goes its own way, never to be the same again if there is change in site, situation or context.
I focused on the tension in sanctuary. In response, people brought me stories, metaphors, memories, pain and joys of their own. It meant a great deal to me that there was such a deep exchange between the gift of art that I was giving (or the gift of being a channel for these creations), and the reflection, remembering and for some, healing that came up. There was the experience of disruption and also the possibility of regeneration. Truly, the space became sacred. I was very honored, and deeply moved throughout the time of this show.
