VITRINE: Examining the Premises

We decided to meet the next day because neither of us could make it this evening. When I woke up the next morning, every building and storefront was drenched in warm sunlight. Each glass pane in every window and the windshields of every car shimmered brilliantly, and as I walked towards the street corner, I felt light-headed and nauseous. —José Mora

Examining the Premises

22 October–10 December 2016

Examining the Premises is a text-based installation made up of three components: a narrative fragment, a looping sentence and a short observation. These three written fragments loosely tie together a single stream of consciousness.

Accompanying Mora’s installation work is a parallel commissioned text by Lucas Soi. An online chapbook produced for the project can be downloaded here.
