Preview of video installation (Embroidering a lamb's tongue) for Bellevue Arts Museum Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet.
Description from original piece (2010): Inspired by the meaningless yet precious object (the "abolished bauble of sonorous uselessness / aboli bibelot d'inanité sonore") described in Mallarmé’s “Ses Purs Ongles”. The piece was executed over the course of four days, during which an average of six hours a day was spent embroidering the top surface of a lamb’s tongue. Over one thousand antique jet glass beads were sewn, eventually transforming and obfuscating the organ. Once finished, the perishable meat had to be cut loose and discarded.
