Snow Flake Queen (2012)

The Snow Flake Queen is a performance / installation project based on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale, “The Snow Queen,” wherein a devious Queen casts an evil spell on a village, which they may only be released from by spelling the word “eternity” out of ice. The installation is comprised of a collection of over a thousand one-of-a-kind hand-cut paper snowflakes made of colourful gift-wrapping paper, which are pinned to the wall. On one wall the word “eternity” is spelled out in a blizzard of flakes. The SFQ performance features me dressed in a costume fit for a “queen” where I offer to make snowflakes out of classic fairy tale book illustrations for the viewers as souvenirs of their “joyful” visit.
