Where He Meets Him

2001 ~ present, Incense powder, dimensions variable
Using powdered incense, I write the names of gay bars/clubs in the city that is hosting my exhibition on the floor of the exhibition space. The incense slowly burns during the period of the exhibition. The significance of the names is initially clear only to those who are familiar with these spaces. For others, they only appear as enigmatic words. An essential part of this work is the process of sharing the piece with the viewers by burning it. As the incense burns, the physical boundary of the piece expands unpredictably into space and even enters the viewer’s body.
