It is a work that joins the public and predominantly male with the domestic and feminine. Such divisions may well be harder to defend as we approach the present day. You could say that it is a record containing little snips of the past, rearrangements displaying both joys and tensions hidden in the material of memory. The audio track that accompanies these cuts, sits somewhere between a hum and a pulse and yet even if it sounds nothings like it, has all the intentions of a lullaby. It is kept as dark as the pictures are bright, earthbound to counter their airiness. It was generated from old recordings by the many performers featured in the paintings, slowed down and held on a few, single notes. If we were to sum our intentions, then stating that this is a record of being inside rather than outside of time is fair. It is our attempt to measure what it are like to be a participant and not the observer. The work wants to imply what happens when life is gauged, not by numerical dates but by a human calendar-the plastic clocks that pop up daily- and how their gestures interact with the wordless hope and longings, ups and downs in our own domestic life.
As we live, we spend time but we also attempt to earn something back by rearranging our memories to understand what happens. We see today against what we saw yesterday and as we cut and dissect what we encounter we are editing an archive which is both flowing and organic.
