I wanted to pass this on.
I have been thinking a great deal about making, lately: the work of the hands and the body. How making connects this body to space, to place. And how it is (or can be), in essence, a way of close listening – both to the body and mind doing the making, and to the materials and environment in which the making takes place.
I have spent the week recovering from the flu: this, it’s own special kind of close listening to the body and its limits. In this recuperation, I have been making, when my energy allows. Nests. Sculptures of nests that will soon have a place in the exhibition of work I have coming up at the Art Gallery of St. Albert. So – when I came across this delightful work, I felt the timing was perfect.
I hope you enjoy.
