Phoenix Lindsey-Hall, Never Stop Dancing

Never Stop Dancing, consists of 49, slip cast porcelain disco balls—an homage to the victims of the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando in June of 2016. Extending from Lindsey-Hall’s ongoing practice examining violence in queer communities through the medium of cast porcelain objects (often ones people have used in hate crimes) the 49 porcelain disco balls will each be illuminated with light and suspended at various heights from the ceiling. The disco ball is a firmly-rooted signifier of nightclubs and, by extension, celebration. By matting the ball’s mirrored panels, its reflective quality becomes muted, turning the viewer’s gaze inwards.
