Life, Love and Death: Dripping Crotch Chandelier

"Life, Death and Love." February 2016. The Living Gallery.

The Dripping Crotch Chandelier is a collaboration with photographer and show curator Anjelica Jardiel. She wanted to recycle her used panties, highlighting any residual menstrual stains. Together, we created the shade by slightly draping the panties over the steel ring, and pouring heavy amounts of resin in such a way that it would pool where the vagina would rest, with any excess slowly dripping off to harden. I welded the chandelier body out of scrap brass materials, and wired 4 candelabra sockets so that pink bulbs could illuminate the entrance of the gallery.
