There aint No Party Like a Holy Ghost Party
March 30 - April 23, 2007
Reception: Friday, April 6, 7-10pm
The installation There aint No Party Like a Holy Ghost Party attempts to create a space where thoughts of faith and addiction can simultaneously exist. Traditionally these two states have inhabited separate landscapes socially. These two contriving terrains describe a dependency not on the other but rather on the polarity of their existence.
