Self-Titled, 2018 (open print run)


a marvel of tenderness—I hope this is clear. I’ve … little interest to see what it is, grief or science. you can almost think of it as an unintelligible chamber opera in four acts: purchasing, incorporating, connecting, resonating. I can’t help but feel something is missing from that, though and I’m working that out, but that’s OK, because I want a sense of the unclear and unresolved—if a coup came down and everything before the coup disappeared, something like this. we have to set out the apple SpringCushion® molded fiber trays, water the lawn, move downstairs, and these are lines, not like brushstrokes really (avoid lakes) toward a hypothetical. but by the end, because the trays are made of purple fiber (in the grapefruit trays, the honeycomb and shipping malformations are eliminated), it’s only a matter of time before

[excerpt from a text within the exhibition]

“While much discussion of self-reflexive works consider the many ways in which a work can reflect on its surroundings, what seems to be less regarded is the way that the work’s context is in turn reproduced.”
