  Show Postcard Image   Photo by Emily Miller  From  Purgatory in Paradise , a Performative Installation by Femily Killer.   Purgatory in Paradise  is a darkly comedic ode to the St. Petersburg lifestyle  featuring high priestesses, a confessional booth, and a communion mass. It is a  Requiem for motivation at odds with a balmy happy hour. It is about living as a local in tourism-driven Florida. It is about the feeling of stagnation that so many of my friends have expressed to me despite an authentic yearning for progress. It is about pain pills and bikinis. It is about that blank complacency you feel when you take a sip from your rum-runner while your brain sautés on an August night...framed, of course, by the most beautiful sunset in the world.
