Those of us whom was raised in united states into the 1960s and 70s lacked art, Bible tales, and history as universal sources. The tome that shaped our values most tangibly ended up being the emporium catalogue, a wish guide of that which we may have and whom we’re able to be when we started using it. Gender had been demonstrably defined, battle had been single, and course had been center. In this performance we make use of the tableau type to enact a typical page through the Eaton’s catalogue, the most-read guide of our Canadian youth. We now have paired women’s formals (a appearance we now have had difficulty effectively fitting into) with restroom plumbing work to invoke the endless bounty, cleanliness and hope that the catalogue implied. Three ladies stay in vacant stillness, water streaming through the spouts at their breasts.
