Christine Macel, Director of the current 57th Venice Biennale, has written a book “Time Taken”
in which she sheds light on the little Latin word, ‘otium’.
‘’otium…. implies a space for free time, for inactivity and availability, a space of productive idleness and mind work, of quietness and action, a space where the work of art comes to be.
Whilst reading this book, I realized how vital this space>time is for me within my practice. To a greater extent it’s largely invisible, and often, with no realization of a finished work.
So under the radar of STUDIO RESEARCH, I hope to shed some light on the somewhat frenetic“flow of continuous mutations” integral to my process.
