A Proposition Ate My Marriage
2009
Silk, Embroidered Text of Constitutional Laws, Pigment, Bed Frame, Drawing of the Loving's Marriage Certificate, Canopy
Room sized installation.

In 1958 an interracial couple, who had just gotten married, were awoken in the middle of the night by police in their bedroom. Richard and Mildred Loving were arrested because they were violating Virginia's miscegenation law. Their case subsequently went to the Supreme Court and in 1967, became the decisive case to strike down prohibition against interracial marriage.

For this room sized installation at LMCC, I looked at the similarities between this case and what is currently occurring with Proposition 8 in California and gay marriage in general. Legal court decisions are embedded (embroidered) upon a canopy over the "marital bed" with the Loving's marriage certificate hung nearby (just as it was in their own home).

The questions posed are these: Is marriage, an already insurmountable achievement, able to withstand these added pressures and do these pressures even have a place in the personal space between two human beings?
