Doing Easy

Two small works of mine are currently on view in a wonderfully unique exhibition in a residence in Joshua Tree, in the High Desert of California. Curated by Erik Benjamins, Doing Easy is a domestic intervention that presents the work of visual artists, designers and writers who reflect on the sway of place.

Doing Easy optimistically engages with the domestic space as a privileged and underestimated sanctuary for reflection, education, production, and ritual. The presented works—ranging from a cork doorstop to a wooden chair to a folder of poems to a scented hand soap—have been installed in a way which allows them to slip into the daily routines and rhythms of a living, breathing home.

My autosummary poem ‘Eugene!’ based on Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel is placed on a bedside table. Real Estate Dreams. Nr. 1 The Candle, a small series of found real estate images is located on the kitchen wall.

Participants in the show: Alex Reed (US), Ashley Eden Kessler (US), David Horvitz (US), Elisabeth Tonnard (NL), Erik Benjamins (US), Janelle DolRayne (US), Jasper Morrison (UK), Lauren Godfrey (UK), Max Lamb (UK), Norma & Various Projects, Inc. (US), Pico Iyer (JP), Stef Halmos (US), Susan Barbour (US), Yeb Wiersma (NL).
