My solo exhibition this fall had to be cancelled. I am currently dismantling and reassembling its many intended elements, letting them resurface in new contexts eventually (and in much smaller constituents than originally planned). Here’s one of the performative elements out of original context, referencing Isaiah 38:10 (a line which was re-interpreted at the very beginning of Dante’s Inferno). In modern English it reads something like this: “I say: In the midst of my days I shall go to the gates of hell.” (1)
