Abstract or Description

The work of art is marked by the sum of its journeys. And as it
leaves its mark in turn it changes, somehow, along the way. You
might not witness the change nor be able to verify any signs or
gestures of transformation after the fact, but between one pause
and another, somehow, inscrutably, something has changed.
Front of House is one such stop along a continuing series of practices,
revisiting and rethinking works to a degree that could be
understood to render them as if seen for the first time. Parasol
unit has proved to be a privileged space of reflection, in which
to take stock, regroup and define a series of intersecting practices
that have been mutually indebted for many years. And in
so doing has produced a new body of work that is defined by the
location and the discourse which accompanied the project. A
citation becomes a point of origin and vice versa, and fresh commentary
is accrued back into the work it comments upon.
