|LV21 light vessel for Figure Ground Residency|
through dark spaces. Ladders are the main way of getting in an out. I like the idea of a ship being docked, between histories, living another life beyond its original use, is it an authentic light vessel or something else now?
Amazing bright blue crisp sunshine, a ship to play on all day. To breathe in the space, be challenged by new perspectives from artists with very different practices, managing to find a middle ground to share something of our ideas and thoughts. Space to let things unfold in their own time without pressure, what a luxury. I was working with two artists during the day, we were initially wondering how we would connect, but I found there was more in common than I thought. Finding that a painter moves with their body and inhabits the work much like I do when I try to inhabit a space. Finding artists who like poetry and singing, who are not restricted by medium or the parameters of art practice, who want to go well beyond those boundaries. A glorious and inspiring start to a great project. Why not keep in touch with the project as it is developing at the figure ground blog
