Water under a bridge is an installation, an
exhibition and a process sprawling across two
locations. Works are pre-made, remade, and
unmade in a presentation of and an invitation
To forage requires an agnostic kind of
curiosity. It is a practice of visually combing
one’s surroundings, seeing what already is
(now), not looking to what could be (future).
Scraps of reality are gleaned from the endless
churning and overflowing streams of matter
that surround and sustain us. Snippets of the
current and concrete — moments of glancing
down at your feet as you make your way
towards your destination.
Like moments, the works (and the scraps),
too, are in perpetual motion. Every part of
every process here is one of relational change:
material, circumstantial and existential.
Seen, not looked for; found, not sought;
captured, not contained.
