THE ONION CELLAR by Morgan Cahn
1 x vile bottle containing wooden shard, on blue or red string, 1 x A6 postcard, heavy weight card stock, letter press printed, edition of 100, 2014
The Onion Cellar expands on a chapter in Gunter Grass’ novel ‘The Tin Drum’. It relates to themes of war, emotional detachment, and commodification. I chose not to document the direct performance. It was important to me that people weren’t self conscious, as the night involved opening up and weeping with a room full of other people.
