Another week, another artwork is selected for inclusion in Say What You See.
Those responsible for deciding what comes next were aspex‘s Jonathan Parsons, artist advisor and Letty Clarke, Project Co-ordinator. Thank you to all those who submitted and supported the exhibition.
The work Jonathan and Letty felt communicated most successfully with Lisa Traxler’s Everything but the Kitchen Sink and would lead the conversation in a most intriguing direction is Post- Historic Gravegoods by Judes Crow.
In response to Lisa Traxler’s Everything but the Kitchen Sink I present Post-historic Gravegoods. Lisa’s work has made me look at my passing of time.
Having moved well beyond the kitchen sink and having achieved a wrinkled beauty, I am thinking about how in death I can honour myself and my life’s journey. I decided I wanted to take ‘treasure’ to my afterlife that connects my memories, life as I have lived it, and, for example, my craving for chocolate, my childlike joy in simple things like cows, rabbit jelly and acorns. So I have begun the process of making these objects in the style of pre-historic artefacts that may some day be found in my grave by a future archaeologist.
