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.
