Closed Down Clubs is a sculptural presentation of a series of freestanding doors, produced by the artist to match exactly
those of a particular nightclub or small community establishment right at the moment when it ceased to exist. When a place
closed, Connor would document the doors in detail and she has worked with a range of fabrication techniques in their re-creation.
The artist frames each of these doors as a document for a lost space, entry into a place that was.
These physical pieces of the clubs acted as signage announcing their respective identities: Connor’s sculptures capture their
details as a piece of the past, and the artist even reproduced ephemera from the events inside (such as club flyers) and eviction
notices from city authorities. Most striking are the artist’s inclusion of the direct statements clubs would post on the doors
advising their communities of their demise–Connor recorded and reproduced these as well.
