Save the Date, 2012

Performance / Video / Performance Stills, 8h 0m, Dimensions Variable


Save the Date explores the life cycle of marriage and divorce, and the wedding ceremony’s complex mix of private emotion, public spectacle, social expectation, and state power. Every hour, on the hour, Kathryn wed and eventually divorced seven suitors, six of whom were personally selected by the artist from proposals submitted via Tumblr, and the seventh was chosen by public vote on Facebook.
