Remarks on Twenty-Three Sculptures and a Painting

A free form guided tour for James Prevetts exhibition Twenty-Three Sculptures and a Painting at
Galleria Sculptor, September 2022. I told a story about a coat, which comes fromThe Wishing Bone Cycle – a collection of Narrative poems from the Swampy Cree people (1982). I read poems by Cole Swensen and Robert Lax. There were repeated excerpts and reworked bits from books: The Life of Forms in Art by Henri Focillon (1942), The Shape of Time by George Kubler (1962) Crowds and Power by Elias Canetti (1960) and Cultivating the Empty Field by Taigen Dan Leighton (2000). I told a joke. I remade a magic trick by Terry Fox. I added materials to the exhibition.
