Perfect Sunset (there’s nothing sad about it), examines the idea of endings. Through video, sound, sculpture, and imagery relating to retirement parties, happy hours and sunsets, a space is constructed to play with the complex emotions relating to times of liminality and change. Early 1990s footage from my grandfather’s retirement party is source material for works that contemplate labor and leisure and propose faring well in the face of loss. Participants were encouraged to arrive at the space ready to retire from something and draw back the sunset-colored curtain on what’s next.
