This was really special for me in many ways. I’ve looked up to Alice Gallery (the same people behind MIMA) and these artist friends of mine in Brooklyn, all for 10 years or more.
Maya filled a lofty chapel type room, Swoon worked unexpectedly outdoors and in the unfinished basement, Faile did the bathrooms rather spontaneously, and the stairs, and filled a room with their prayer wheel from Times Square. I used two connected rooms for the things you see here: wall paintings, video, sculpture, shaped walls (one covered in stucco), a long shelf, and a curious paper experiment…
An idea of mine from 2006, which I had never fully realized, but pictured many times, over these 10 years- finally worked. That’s 1/2 of Faile ripping it. This was so much fun. Video by Alice.
And I had a lot of help! Inspired installation skills from Sergei, Benoit, and Francois. Lionel, Monica, Keene, Nic, David! & The MIMA team generally, were all creators in this.
