First Kite, 2017

by Nic Grobler

Wood, thread and sail, 92 x 95 x 72cm (Prints available). Realization that you are almost lost in a state of over optimism, and then deciding to still hold on to it like it is the most valuable thing on earth, as if everything is actually impossible all the time but it happens anyway. The most important thing remains to observe a sense of wonder and a sense of beautiful possibilities. We all have a fascination with an impossible or even failing object, it can be a symbol for hope - it might be an object that is imaginative, one that challenges physics and ‘normal’ conditions. Even though failure is likely, the aim is not to end with failure, but to iterate and explore, to fnd a new way that is part of reality. It is display-ing not the object but the attempt and the dream itself. Like a dream object. Dysfunc-tional but beautiful. Like a physical sketch of an object.
