Of a Lee Shore


8 Nov 2019 — 30 Nov 2019

g.bridle presents a selection of objects from the collection of The Retreat.

Of a Lee Shore is the binding title attributed to eight artworks selected from an ever growing collection named the Retreat . The artifacts that make up this collection have been discovered, curated and edited through a process of independent, private museology. Strategically infrequent, the moments of installation reveal a constant curiosity of the potential and power in everyday inanimate objects.

“I have been thinking of the difference between water and the waves on it. Rising, water’s still water, falling back, it is water, will you give me a hint how to tell them apart?
Because someone has made up the word ‘wave’, do I have to distinguish it from water? There is a Secret One inside us; the planets in all the galaxies pass through his hands like beads.
That is a string of beads one should look at with luminous eyes”.
