Chicago Artists Coalition is pleased to present song and story, an exhibition featuring new works by BOLT artist-in-residence, Erin Hayden. The exhibition runs from July 19 – August 29, 2019, with a reception on Friday, July 19, from 5-8 PM.
There’s been a lot of shedding of old skin, heavy coats, long hair, big gestures, and it’s vulnerable. Letting moves sit still and be small. Letting words repeat and resonate. Drawing yourself into a knot to get at what it feels like. With a lake at our side and so much of the world oceans away, we walk, breathing with the moon, reminding ourselves we’re water-based. Opening up to the dim depths of what is decided to be true. I’m writing letters to you, to me, to us; and, my thoughts wander as fast as your eyes can read it. Mediated by my clumsy fingers pressing keys and a typewriter that likes to make space on its own — as thin as paper and as heavy as a heart.
Thanks for reading,
song and story
