BV in Newfoundland!


The Breastival Vestibule took a beautiful seat above the bay in St John’s Newfoundland for the 2014 Eastern Edge Art Marathon Festival: Carnival!

Local writer Gloria Hickey describes: The Breastival was an inflatable architecture that temporarily took over the Craft Council parking lot. It was a sanctuary of quiet conversation where visitors were asked to remove their footwear and enter its carpeted interior. Shaped by feminist and queer politics it welcomed us like a huge breast. Unbeknownst to Rachael Shannon, this parking lot has been a disputed area between sex workers, their clients and the downtown community. Shannon’s art was a powerful healing.
