Spray is a two-day performance in which the artist disassembles a large casket spray into boutonnieres and smaller bouquets to be given away to audience members along with a copy of the new artist’s book “Colossal Equine Statue.” The book is a collection of poetic explorations of the themes, inspirations, and reference points that lead to the performance. The publication is the third in a seres of essay collections that consider grief, mourning, time, and decay. The remnants of this performance will be left open to the public until April 2, 2022.
