Smelling Salts for Dinner Party

Spirits of hartshorn, essence of spinach, silt, violet, bergamot, thyme - served in the shell of a quail egg

2017

Smelling salts were produced for Dinner Party, a performative exhibition of scent curated by Mary Eleanor Wallace and Kate Sierzputowski at TUSK, with Christalena Hughmanick, Joshua Kent, Matt Morris, and Patricia Rose. The performative text posed questions of passivity and production, photosynthesis and promiscuity, while guests were guided to inhale photoluminescent smelling salts by crushing a quail egg."
