Is this show 'about' something? There's no project, outlook, or statement. The work is cute. Looks like 2007, before the crash. I'm listening to Wilco. I wish it was 2007 again.
What the fuck should I say about all this work that I've done?
I Ching says:
Self-discipline brings success; but restraints too binding bring self-defeat.
I am stuck in traffic in a taxicab
which is typical
and not just of modern life
mud clambers up the trellis of my nerves
must lovers of Eros end up with Venus
muss es sein? es muss nicht sein, I tell you
how I hate disease, it's like worrying
that comes true
and it simply must not be able to happen
in a world where you are possible
nothing can go wrong for us, tell me
– Frank O'Hara, 1960
‘Song’ features new works by Jaakko Pallasvuo, made during his residency (5th July - 7th August) at Jupiter Woods. Following the launch of the exhibition, he will continue to inhabit the gallery as a studio space.
Pallasvuo has invited Luca George to perform at the opening.
This residency is the first at Jupiter Woods to benefit from a grant provided by Arts Council England.
