The "Are You My Mother?" Reading Room
Carpet, pillows, chest, chairs, wooden bookshelves, 34 edited copies of "Are You My Mother?"
12' x 6' x 3'
Featured in my solo show in January 2014 in Interplayers Professional Theater's Community Room Gallery, a social practice piece consisting of 34 customized "Are You My Mother?" books that have all but one (but consecutive) page cut out of them. The participant moves through each numbered book to follow the story to the resolution. This is a journey, with coordinating carpet and pillows, just as life throws at us. Well, maybe not the pillows.
