Yesterday I went to the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts to see Holly Wong’s Guardian of the Spirits,  a “suspended installation of cellophane, dichroic film, silk and polyester organza, gold fabric, vinyl tablecloth, transparencies and thread”.   That may sound strange but it’s a beautiful, flowing, clear and patterned airiness.  It moves as one walks by, and then, guarded by the spirits, one looks up to the second floor, and there overhanging is a long gun sticking out from the turret of a tank.  Walking up, one sees the tank with a teensy-tiny Russian flag atop is breaking through a wall.  The flag of Ukraine hangs from the gun.


Heart stops and beats even more receptively again.
