The Great Rainbow Temple of Unicornia (2019), Large-Scale Installation.
Focusing on Queer Iconographies in perspectives that are commercial, political, and social, this installation takes a look at the unspoken presence of the unicorn as one those symbols culturally. Inhabiting a imagined space, Unicornia, this work presents a grand temple made of party supplies, recycled objects, help create a surrounding environment where figurine unicorns flock upon the land freely. Using an alter-based space decolonizes the history of the unicorn from one being seen of a Christian symbol of purity to the earliest drawings that have been found in record of the Indus Valley Civilization. While having no organized religious based direction of this piece, it observes a conversation of queer spirituality, both from what is found in my own heritage to a level that universal. The cloth piece floating above the fictitious temple and universe is a reminder of healing and love that sometimes is deeply needed when being marginalized in a queer, trans, and gender-non-conforming identity. Legitimizing a need for queer spirituality and a opening a conversation about queer healing, The Great Rainbow Temple Of Unicornia presents a space of such through queer aesthetics and fluidity.
