Golgatha is a presentation of three works examining dysphoria and mental illness: Golgatha, Glass Body II, and Firmament. Innovative stained glass techniques are centralized and used to twist Judeo-Christian framings of sublimity, martyrdom, and suffering. Attempts are made to heal from repeated experiences of spiritual abuse and rejection. Smashed liquor bottles, saliva, underwear, shredded plastic, pins, needles, assorted detritus of personal historical significance assist in the process. What does it mean when I feel the urge to sacrifice/extinguish myself? How would I even begin to locate my extant parts?
About the Artist: Dani Robison has been doing unusual things with stained glass for the past eight years. In 2010 she earned degrees in printmaking and music from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN. She recently released her third compositional suite with the ensemble Sapphire Lung titled Chamber Slime, and curated an original speculative holiday: Diluvianalia. Robison has disseminated over one thousand fine talismans across the globe as part of an everlasting project titled Disseminating Talismans Forever.
