Trapdoor: Shady Swans Residency, Atlanta, GA

Curatorial exploration between Coorain Devin and Robert Chamberlin. 

July 2019


In an effort to love and protect those we hold closest, we create shaky foundations and unstable ground. We rush to build our bunkers and fortresses and we still fail to protect. Trapdoor seeks to examine the depth of love needed to protect. Through a queer experience we create and choose our families but also grapple with the safety of ourselves and those we have chosen. When does our desire to protect not serve us or those we are trying to protect? Who are you building your bunker for?
