Aprons Away (and Comments Book)
(Window Box)

Gillian Collyer: Seton Foyer Flag Replacement
Gillian Collyer: Seton Foyer Flag Replacement

Gillian Collyer. Seton Foyer Flag Replacement 6 December 1998, one-day intervention.
2 Oct 1998 – 9 Nov 1998

October 2 23: Aprons Away
Artist Gillian Collyer presented her collection of 1950s hostess aprons in the first of a series of Window Box installations located in the MSVU library. As a feminist intervention in public space, Collyer's apron installation made jarring reference to the feminine mystique of years past.

October 23 November 9: Comments Book
Prompted by the more pointed responses to the Aprons Away installation, Collyer replied with the Comment Book installation. She removed the aprons from two of the four window boxes, replacing them with photocopies of the pages from the comment book, hanging from the clotheslines. She also posted a written account of her intentions and asked viewers to observe a more respectful protocol when registering their comments.
