After by Appointment

Mistletoe has been a symbol of peace and forgiveness for centuries. In the past, if enemies met by chance under mistletoe, they were required to put down their weapons and declare a ceasefire (if only for one day). This custom later morphed into our present-day tradition—kissing beneath mistletoe.
This tradition provided Leona Scull-Hons with the content for her newest interactive installation. She has invited the community to use her installation as a place to meet, kiss, forgive, and embrace friends or foes under a mistletoe ceiling at Cactus Bra.
For the last six years, Leona has focused on relationships by creating installations and arranging events for social interactions to occur. Her work is dependent upon audience participation, but it is equally as powerful when there is lack of participation. Leona concentrates on the subtleties of rituals that connect and disconnect us as a community.
