An Ontario Bride
Seeks American Wives

The Kitchen Street Festival, New York City


In response to Ontario’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage, the artist travels to New York to exercise her new rights, marrying countless men, women, pets, fire hydrants and street signs. She carried a small portable sound system, which played popular wedding songs. Over fifty ceremonies were conducted at the event. The marriage certificate states the terms of nuptials, which include that “if we bump into each other at a movie ticket line, and one of us is way up near the front of the line, we will allow the other person to sneak into the line right next to us, because that’s what married people do for each other.”
