Intrinsically process driven, To-Do lists are both aspirational and pro-active, both of the moment and for the future. When an item on a To-Do list is crossed off, it becomes an accomplishment, but when left undone, a nagging regret. Normally not for public consumption, To-Do lists are intimate and unguarded, unpremeditated and revealing. Hinting at a work in progress, they become accidental journal entries, a place where thoughts become systems and notes become ideas, and a unique record of a particular moment in time. Once an item has been ticked off the list, the list itself is a witness to (or evidence of) one’s own power to manifest.
Works in the show are motivated by To-Do lists which are also displayed and appear in many forms: pencil on Post-it, printed out screen shot, and scrawl on a wall.
On view on Saturdays 12-4pm and by appointment.
