Vallance bridges the museum world with popular culture using a variety
of media and distinctive
methodical research, transforming what may be considered paranormal or
mythical into system of faith and legitimacy. Dissecting contemporary
culture and objects and uniting them with traditional
entities, he fuses our schismatic world.
Vallance is able to connect commonplace objects with paranormal devices, searching for an
untold faith. In 1978 Vallance purchased a frozen chicken at a local supermarket, brought
it home and named it Blinky. Proceeding to give Blinky a funeral ceremony worthy of a
fallen soldier, Vallance documented the occasion with drawings and video. Keeping the
styrofoam and naming it The Shroud of Blinky he was compelled to compare it to the Shroud
of Turin, known as the Holy Shroud, and search for some cohesive circular unity in humanity.
