Scott Rogers
Rainbow (for
David Hammons)

A Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Independent Project, Zone C
02.10.10 (7pm – sunrise) 03.10.10

When he was invited to participate in Nuit Blanche in Paris, the American artist David Hammons predicted that a double rainbow would appear over the city during the night of the festival. Three days before the event Hammons’ piece was inexplicably cancelled by the event organizers. Scott Rogers’ installation for *QueenSpecific forms a subtle gesture of solidarity with Hammons, creating a rainbow inside Dufflet Pastries for the duration of the 2010 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. Rainbow (for David Hammons) is a miniature natural wonder, a tribute to an elusive artist and a site for momentary contemplation in an otherwise boisterous environment.
