The above is a site specific work for Winter Pride at the House of St Barnabas. I'm submitting the work with the intention that furniture in one room of the venue be rearranged to make space for it, thus disrupting the room in which it's displayed and forcing the viewer to pay it attention. The paving slab memorialises the 57 trans people murdered in 2017, and also references both the disproportionate number of queer homeless youth (in particular), as well as the fact that most trans people who've been murdered in recent years have been killed in the street, as well as that most violence against queer people happens in the street. The flowers are a reference to the above violence and murder - pink carnations are symbolic of remembrance-, and I'm considering either the flowers not being changed during the exhibition, so they wilt and die during the course of it, or having a new bunch of flowers being placed on the slab each day, with the previous days' flowers being thrown into a corner of the room, illustrating the amount of violence that happens on a day-to-day basis. The work itself is certainly rather Readymade, but to me, it's the context and site-specificity that lends it sombre importance, sincerity, and poignancy.
