"You don't understand the meaning of my gesture". We have been caught up in an endless cycle of idea, pursuit, discovery and advancement - how to convey the fact that for four months four individuals worked consistently with the idea of purchasing one artwork. Throughout this process, the act of doing/pursuing becomes all consuming and overshadows the act of presentation or exhibition. In a desperate attempt to reconcile the two, 'doing' exhausts itself to the point of displaying incomprehensible lines of enquiry and discovery.
Tangled in a mess of correspondences and miscommunication lie an archive of lived experience: impossible to be accurately displayed, unlikely to be repeated, definitely to be continued.
