Those of us whom was raised in united states within the 1960s and 70s lacked art, Bible tales, and history as universal sources. The tome that shaped our values most tangibly had been the emporium catalogue, a wish guide of everything we might have and whom we’re able to be as soon as it was got by us. Gender had been plainly defined, battle ended up being singular, and course had been middle. The most-read book of our Canadian youth in this performance we use the tableau form to enact a page from the Eaton’s catalogue. We’ve paired women’s formals (a appearance we now have had trouble effectively fitting into) with restroom plumbing system to invoke the endless bounty, cleanliness and hope that the catalogue implied. Three females stay in vacant stillness, water streaming through the spouts at their breasts.
