*1/// Thinking I wanted
*2/// Looking at clouds
*3/// Chasing cars
*4/// My mother always told me only dumb people get bored
meandering as a practice
there is no greater pleasure
getting lost makes the eyes grow wider.
feel that all encounters are chance
The world is big to see it all.
was it just for me >>>>
joy, or insight, or pleasure
reminding me I was here, still
For her show with Goldfinch, Noël Morical pivots from her hallmark knotting to chance new processes and expands her material palette.
This exhibition is an embodiment of slow observation, a possibility of some things happening. Events in the absence of any obvious design. Once the dice are thrown there is something to see, something to hear, something to experience.
