We are pleased to relay information regarding the most recent extraordinary project from one of our favorite artists here at DP: Charles Stankievech.
The catalogue includes an interview with curator Ola Wlusek:
Mr. Stankievech selects a quote from Clarice Lispector as an epigraph for the project:
I only had initially a lunar and lucid vision, and so I plucked for myself the instant before it died and perpetually dies.
We find the full context for the quoted passage useful, when contemplating voyages to the land beyond the land beyond:
I don’t know what I’m writing about: I am obscure to myself. I only had initially a lunar and lucid vision, and so I plucked for myself the instant before it died and perpetually dies. This is not a message of ideas that I am transmitting to you but an instinctive ecstasy of whatever is hidden in nature and that I foretell. And this is a feast of words. I write in signs that are more a gesture than a voice.
