My Mother’s

my mother’s wedding dress, polypropelene pool rope, two stainless steel dock cleats, Northern Light Technologies SADelite for seasonal affective disorder, Egyptian musk

This object is an authentic White family relic. When draped from three specific points, the underside of the dress reveals the image of a vagina. The polyester fabric form is suspended with blue and white striped polypropylene pool rope and illuminated with a seasonal depression lamp. When not on display, the dress collapses to its normal shape for storage in the family closet.
