Last night was Contextural’s critique night. We got to see the show with its public face, and talk about our work.
The armature for hanging was perfectly made by my Greyman, and really enhanced the idea.
I stumbled a bit, never knowing how to start with these “self explanations”, touching on obsession and mental illness. Fortunately, this group is supportive, non-judgemental and truly interested in process and meaning. No one realized that i had taken 7 months to make this one, with portions being created during my June residency.
Our reception is actually a closing one, deliberately chosen to coincide with the Michael Brennand-Wood lecture on the 12th–should be fascinating in a lot of respects!
