Joy Before the Object

Brian Bress, Simon Cunningham, Hannah Hewetson, Joey Holder, Anouk Kruithof, Erin O’Keefe, Simon Linke, Richard Paul Placing, nudging or kneading material, or finding analogues for such activities. The medium is contingent: a painting or perhaps a photograph, something halfway between a representation and its referent or the actualisation of a symbol not necessarily designed to be materialised. These are all possibilities now. This surely echoes our own joy before the object: multi-layered, image stacked upon image or objects caressed, firmly grasped or desired from a discreet distance. Take pleasure in the results of others’ activity, these things, and recognise in them our own contingency, our own analogous subjectivity.
