At your service
Unpack Gallery, Toronto
At your service is a performance in which the artist prepares and serves hors d'oeuvres to the attending audience on 100 appetizer white plates during an exhibition's opening or closing reception, functioning as a catering service. The used plates are then washed and dried before being stored on a china cabinet. After all plates have been washed, dried and stored, the artist closes the doors of the cabinet and throws the cabinet to the ground, damaging the plates inside. The artist then picks the cabinet up, rearranges the broken plates inside and selecting some of the pieces, creates small displays on serving trays that are placed on the working table where the food was prepared.
