Dinner Party Pistol

Glenna Jennings’ series of photographs, “Dinner Party Pistol”, documents an event that never took place: a family dinner with her father and his prized gun. When he passed away last year, leaving Jennings a 22cal Ruger (and 16 other guns), she created an odd theater of domestic ritual during which she staged her initial private performance. Since then, she has invited other women to the table to commemorate their own fathers through food and drink and talk about guns. The result is an ongoing series of portraits that investigate the creation and maintenance of private memory from a gendered perspective.
