Dining Alone

Installation with audio, text & photograph

1993

An invitation to make a work for a Paris restaurant turned into a lonely and paranoid meal for one for Starr. At a later date lone diners at the same restaurant are invited into the wine cellar where they can dine by candle-light while listening to Starr's thoughts from her own dining alone experience. While in Paris she also dines alone on a makeshift table by the Seine, it's a quiet spot where she can be completely alone away from the eyes of other diners.
