Zeljkovision Tarot Parlor at the Clocktower Gallery (Aug 26th - September 27, 2013)

The video and music in McMullen's "parlor" are mandalas derived from recordings of live rituals invoking the 22 Major Arcana of the Tarot. His immersive experience also utilizes textiles, drawings, personal and religious memorabilia, and 400 lbs. of salt.

Over the course of the installation, I accepted appointments inside the space for personal tarot readings, spiritual guidance, and meditative inebriation.

Leave a Piece of Your Heart Everywhere You Go

Paintings, sculpture, chicken cage, various personal and religious memorabilia and performance

During the opening of the exhibition, I applied either gold, red, or blue glitter gel anywhere on the body of every visitor to the installation, which soon left a subtle but noticeable trail of glitter over the entire exhibition.
