Upstairs, an installation by Rosemonde Stelladora, a reclusive and retiring individual who has studied art, religion, and theatre in Oregon, Nebraska, and Great Britain,. Her piece, Wedding Weather Warnings is an homage to British sculptor Cathy De Monchaux’s work, Dangerous Fragility, American poet Sylvia Plath’s “The Applicant,” and recording artist Laurie Anderson’s Meltdown. WWW is a turbulent fusion of fabrics, metals, plastics, glass, sound, and light. This installation has been a work in progress for over 50 years, whispering on the periphery of the artist’s vision since 1959, making an appearance in bits and pieces from 1965 to 1997. In 1983, some of the inspired impressions and images evolved into performance art presented at Clatsop Community College’s Performing Arts Center. From 1997 to the present, the artist put away the thought of this installation until recently, when PPP presented itself as an appropriate venue for the physical exploration of this piece.
Bent Rabbit Multimedia Studios engineered the sound for this exhibit.
