Is Your House in Order? with Pamela Council, visual artist.
Thursday, July 28, 5pm
In this performance of “Is Your House In Order?” artist Pamela Council will host a conversation prompted by this question and invites the public to stop by and begin writing their wills!
During this session she will also reveal her own will, which will have been written in acid in the nap of velvet. She will use an iron to burn the velvet, allowing the devoré process to reveal the text of her will. Throughout the day, the burning of fabric will remove the velvet’s nap and leave velvet ashes and dust.
