“Text can or can not move hands. It’s not a part of our makeup to always communicate like a clean glass but to react instinctively is our only survival tactic. If we put the past past behind us and the future before us, movements will always be in waiting for the microwave to finish. This reading is a closing of images and an opening of words for you to take hold of solid chunks and forget the insignificant ones. Listen to distinct whisper and tough pronounces, there is no secret.”
Erin Hayden is a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Chicago. Your Hyperbole Could Be A Screensaver is Hayden’s first solo exhibition in Chicago and presents new paintings, video and installation. The following is a statement from Hayden on her exhibition:
