ALL MY SAINTS

 

 

An Interactive Poetic Installation

L. E. Neal

When you crawl to a chapel, you search for grace. When you offer a prayer, you ask for wisdom and healing. When you light a candle, you light it for someone you’ve lost. There’s no place at our traditional altars, however, to remember people who are alive but gone. No space to process who has altered your heart. 

At the Grin City Collective, I created a new space to bring failures and heartaches and hope, and turn them into epiphanies. A space where you can participate by bringing mementos from relationships both damaging and radiant. A space where we light candles for broken friends and former lovers, and canonize the little beauties these hard things have grown within you. At this very human altar, we honor the best pieces of people who have been in our lives, creating a space that allows us to walk out embodying these pieces with gratitude.
