Met Studio Cheered schrijf ik elke week een kunstwerk. Af en toe post ik er hier ook een. Voor meer zie: www.studiocheered.net.
Refilled holes in a wall are spread out like freckles on a face. Remember counting those on your lover’s cheeks, neck, and maybe even other places? This wall is a lover too, for it has partaken in many make out sessions. Touched up by a hand seeking support. We created these ‘freckles’ to suggest marks, like wounds that remind you of hurt and the things you want to fight for. I love how they focus slightly on the power socket. As they sing in Grease: ‘it’s electrifying’.
This installation is part of Clues and signals: an exhibition about the daily gaze of Studio Cheered.
