Shelf Life : Goose painting !
Goose painting ! Something interesting is happening with the Shelf Life project. I’m working on the wire figures and the props at the same time as the paintings. It’s as if the painting process is design development for the set and the film. Thinking with and through paint. Another discovery in my obsession about the relationship between paint and film.
As for the goose thing, it’s a combination of the guard geese at the farm in Devon I used to stay at when I was a kid and some truly magical writing at the end of Austerlitz by WG Sebald. A family of street performers process past us, in age order and at the end is a white goose. Couldn’t find the quote in my studio journals but if you haven’t read this book, I’d say it’s definitely worth the time.
