Scrap Opera, Series of 4, Inkjet print on rag paper, 16” x 12”, 2011
This series of photographs depicts a couple of squatters in a ruined Victorian mansion. An open-air kitchen is a stage for obscure performance: a pregnant woman with horns, a man in a dirty morning robe and sleeping mask, old chicken bones garnishing a fine table setting, etc. Pagan tradition flavors this pre-apocalyptic American opera. Are these people living out a cruel fantasy withother people’s garbage? Are we witnessing choice or necessity?Scrap Opera was featured at the Sweet Union edition of Sofia Queer Festival 2015, download the publication here.
