- New York, NY. “InVocation” (Sculptural installation & Social Practice) for Sex Worker Pop-up by Open Society Foundations, held in conjunction with the UN Conference on the Status of Women. Curated by Alexi Heller
ArtNet.com “A more personal work is Midori’s InVocation, a 20-foot-tall interactive textile sculpture that appeared in the Leslie-Lohman show. Visitors are invited to step inside the hemp rope curtain, which is interwoven with garments and other objects once used by queer sex workers. They’ve ritualistically retired these once-precious belongings, imbuing the piece with a sense of collective memory…. The work on view is thought-provoking, offering an illuminating portrait of a marginalized segment of society forced to operate in the shadows. “
The pop-up is advocating for sex worker human rights.
