About the Event

"...At twenty-eight feet in length, All Saints is simultaneously a barricade and a fragile veil. Strips of color composed of image transfers, ink, acrylic, pills of paper pulp and other debris are woven into an industrial netting and hoisted into the air where they buckle and sag. The size is imposing, but the tattered image is also thin, nearly transparent in places, like a broken panel of stained glass in a cathedral. Amidst the dancers, fireflies float like embers. As in Gokturk’s Fires_Riot series, which tracks moments of social combustion at protests from Gezi to Baltimore, All Saints poses the political challenge of bodies gathered in public space. Like the blossoming fireworks that marked the summer of 2020 in urban spaces across America, these works ambiguously signal violence, resistance, or festivity."   -Caroline Carlsmith
