Garvey's installation for Terminal 136 acts as a kind of feminist temple. The gallery contains a number of altars, each one host to what historian Francis Connelly calls “Boundary Creatures,” grotesque monsters that “roam the borderland of all that is familiar and conventional.” Akin to a kind of stations of the cross, where Christians meditate on the suffering and transformation of Christ on his way to crucifixion, each altar offers a place to contemplate the surreal materialism of the female form, one which has been ruined, sacrificed and reinvented throughout the course of history.
