The book coincides with the Portland-based artist solo exhibition of the same name and compliments the themes of the show. With an emphasis on renewal and community, the exhibition explores tradition and ancient rituals possibly in relation to gender identity.
The press release is ambiguous and poetic with lines like the following:
“Every two decades the Shrine is rebuilt of native cedar as it has been for nearly 2000 years / The design is based on that of the communal grain warehouse, banking seed against famine / Rendered eternal through repeated renewal / We assemble the tools / Change all the pronouns to she / One eye on the rising sun”.
The event will include a reading by Radon and will mark the closing of the exhibition, for which you can see some exhibition photos here.
