*Description of Hangers 101 & a Litany of Hashtags
Hangers 101 & A Litany of Hashtags is a participatory project that creates a dialogue on the current political/social climate. I initiated the first phase of this project on the first day of the new Presidential administration. I made daily visual gestures from hangers and other material, inspired in part by the day's news. In the studio or on sidewalks, participants pause holding hangers, adding a thread, and sharing opinions, which I turn into hashtags, i.e., #climatechange, #womensrighttochoose Instagram (@mcayer27). Instagram (@mcayer27).
a Litany of Hashtags, the ensuing performance (s), includes a monologue created from participant commentary and transformation of the yarned hangers. Performance Artifacts become sculptural work, installation. This project took place in my studio, on the streets as well as at the Glasshouse in Brooklyn, the Bergen Art Festival in Norway, the New York Studio School exhibition, in Back to the Future at Local Project LIC, during The Artist Parade with AIOP, Plaxall Gallery LIC and Blue Spirit in Costa Rica. Visit @mcayer27 on Instagram to see the entire progression of this work.
From near or far, I hope to share a journey with you.
Thank you for your attention and support.
I wish you health, patience, and wonderful discoveries.
