DESCRIPTION

Since 1999, Hunter Reynolds has performed 14 “Mummifications” throughout Europe and the United States.  In conjunction with his current exhibition “Butur” Reynolds will perform a Mummification on Saturday, May 5th, from 3-5 pm.  These rare performances are physically and emotionally grueling and simultaneously inspiring - evoking both rebirth and resurrection. For over twenty years Reynolds has been using photography, performance and installation to express his experience as an HIV positive gay man. 

“Art has always been one of the tools I have used to heal myself and others and to find order in the chaos of my life, by not only telling the story through art, but by transforming myself in the process of making it, using it to rebuild my life, finding hope and beauty and a desire to be alive.” - Hunter Reynolds
