Gerrard Art Space has an open-call show on this month, probably named The Heart Show for Valentine’s Day, but hardly confined to that theme. Lots to see. Lots of variety.
I thought a video capture would best describe Hank Blondeau’s multimedia piece called Thorny Question. It clearly employs symbolism … crown of thorns/ bird nest, sitting on a velvet cushion, in turn sitting on a little pedestal table. Shrine-like.
There is apparently an association with the story of Sister Lúcia, which I had to look up. The bottom of the nest shape is open, so we can see a looping video scape , framed by a ring of dry leaves.
