Everyone’s a Stranger to me now

I’m working on this project – and have been for a couple of months, it’s ongoing research and I’m looking at ways to present and discuss it.

One challenge is how to ‘hang’, whether to ‘hang’ or treat this work like a book, or objects installed say on a plinth or table. I’m leaning towards a table.

After viewing Maureen Lander’s Flat-Pack Whakapapa, I decided to try this hang, which seems better than the traditional horizontal 1500mm high install for drawings and paintings.

But I’m thinking that in piles on a table treats the work with more sensitivity, and maybe more intimate? I’m not even sure if I want ‘intimate’ with my work, the question around ‘is this just too personal’ keeps on at my shoulder…But perhaps that is the strength of the work. And, do I place them neat and tidy, or disheveled? I’m wanting to add to the work each day (each hanky is a moment, a day) and I’m still adding to it….

Aesthetically, I’m enjoying the layers and the suggestion of more, piling up the pieces, and accumulation of time, face, object.

And the detail and texture in marks like this…
