Fashioned from thousands of hand-stitched Kleenex, Andrew McPhail’s monumental installation, CRYBABY, presents a sculptural and performative evocation of grief, loss and tragic experience. Activated by durational performances throughout the course of the exhibition, CRYBABY consists of an open ended street performance where the gathering and laborious sewing together of bartered and donated tissues into a cloudscape installation piece, offers participants a shared perspective into grief and moments of consolation.
