We’re here but not here. We’re staring up at the ceiling at the light passing through our fingers. We’re lost in thought. We can’t find our keys. We forgot what we were going to say. We’re picking at the petals. We’re making a portal in an inactive space...
The four artists presented here have been an integral part of Essex Flowers for the past number of years. Historically, membership in the artist-run enterprise - Essex Flowers - has been shrouded in mystery, or at the very least, unpublished. There is no philosophical reasoning for this other than the fact that Essex Flowers since its inception is an evolving amoeba, a body without a head composed of temporary parts. Before departing for other endeavors these four artists have come together to form a back-space-body in an attempt to reflect on our collaboration and salute the continuing ship as it sails forward.
