Nov 27 – Dec 2, 2017 / closing reception Dec 2 6-9pm: FORESHADOW was an installation at Everyday Gay Holiday (2088 Atwood Ave) in the front window display, where a fern rested on a mound of dirt coated in glitter. Body scans were displayed behind the mound, dirt trickling through the table to the velour-covered floor below. A mirror-faced clock watched over.

We’ve wondered what we can divine and what we can do about it, what grows under pressure and how a body copes with waiting. Tarot readings (during reception) by TK Morton, coordination support from Kim Charles Kay, imagery provided by Borealis, installation support from Kim, Kimber, Taylor, Blue, and Draco.

Daylight view of the sinking installation from inside Everyday; the mound became hollowed out by the end of the week—like a spinal column of nothing—but held most of its shell. Some dirt and glitter cascaded in small avalanches down its side, and the fern resting on top was dead.
