Samsøn is pleased to present Tuesdays & Saturdays by Beverly Semmes and Nicole Cherubini.
Two sculptors as drawers --- mean heat. how they address space. Its visceral qualities, eroticism, abstraction, form, process
-also something about the Oulipian method and system of working in combination with a homeopathic way of proving --- another system. Both are about an essence.
I think there are many modalities one can connect to feminism and our relation to it? Or just some abstract discussion of a feminism located in our practice?
Let’s push for a more obtuse connection on talking about drawing and what it is? And then, if necessary, talk about the work. I do not think there is a need --- an abstract locating of information. The work is more specific. Maybe we push for a relation --------- as a vehicle which opened up this thinking and allowed for a space for the work. An intuition. A connection or interest in the mystical.
-the page about bees by Steiner is a detonate. a cover for any needed info.
-whole earth thinking: you all could choose as desired.
Then there is also that wonderful image of the nude woman reclining....loved in the way that it could work for either of us? The twelve senses and Agnes Martin on color?
