SOME BEGINS: a mythography, with Meg Shevenock
SOME BEGINS: a mythography was an exhibition of sculptures created collaboratively, and (in some instances) telepathically, by Meg Shevenock and Jamie Boyle. The collection of sculptures evaluates the lives of objects, exploring what it is they radiate through their beings: the object's material record of history and the miracle of their discovery. The work wonders over the meanings that are felt, collected, illumined, and commonly ignored, infusing all objects. To kneel on the sidewalk and lift a filthy fragment from the ground is to engage in the inexplicable and miraculous: how one's body and this thing came, in this moment, to be together. If we can find ourselves kin to a plastic, discarded ribbon bleached of its pink by the sun, what does that say about our personal identities, and our beliefs about the world.
