For her last exhibit, queer artist Phoenix Lindsey-Hall created a life-sized porcelain sculpture modeled after the wooden fence on which Matthew Shepard was tortured and left to die.

Lindsey-Hall has made a name for herself casting everyday objects in white plaster that have been used as weapons against the LGBT community, giving people the opportunity to reflect on the spaces they thought were safe.
Never Stop Dancing, Lindsey-Hall's latest exhibition, consists of 49 illuminated, slip cast porcelain disco balls—a tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
Never Stop Dancing is currently running at the Victori + Mo gallery in Brooklyn through February 12. Here, the artist discusses her motivation behind the show and the importance of bars and clubs to building queer community.
