Simple, direct, and beautiful, Tamás Ábel’s Colour Therapy is a powerful statement of queer presence. In this performance, he used a fabricated glass mirror to reflect the rainbow flag onto the Millennium Monument in his hometown of Budapest, Hungary, and the National Monument in Washington, D.C., bringing his subtle and resonant protest to the spiritual heart of each nation.
