"Now Boarding at Gate Me" - The Miami Project - 2015 - Video

I walk into Claudine Maidique Gallery's space at The Miami Project, a satellite fair of Art Basel in Miami. Aside from becoming my instant true friend, she asks me to create a performance piece on the spot. She is showing vintage airline stewardess dresses as part of an overall exhibition about domesticity. I try on one dress. It fits like fate. I create "Now Boarding at Gate Me" to check-in and board gallery guests onto a flight that will take them to their heart's calling. When asked where she wants to go in her life, the woman in this video replies "Up." Are you ready to board?
