I was one of seventeen international artists selected to participate in curator Blanka Amezkua’s collaborative, moveable, temporary new prototype of public art in Athens, Greece.My piece is part of a larger series of portable sanctuaries that are intended to respond to the natural or built environment while providing a refuge—a space within a space. This small, human-created sanctuary is a ritual act—a picnic—intended as an offering for the animals within this urban setting. The performative gesture of the piece happens in the interaction between the animals, who are the performers, and the heirloom plates and linens which act as stand-ins for generations of humans who have made spaces uninhabitable for the very animals being served.
