ERIN WASHINGTON at KIRK’S APARTMENT
A suggestion or a warning?
Or an implication that one has limited breaths in their lifetime: a speedometer of inhales and exhales rolling over towards expiration.
One could hold their breath in hopes of extending a moment, adding seconds to the sentence.
I learned the meaning of the sublime from watching 2001: A Space Odyssey.
During a spacewalk, an astronaut loses his tether and is set adrift, writhing, desperate for oxygen.
An astonishing way to die: contorting, nakedly confronting that deep void as no-one has.
Don’t breathe too much: take in the phenomenological uniqueness of this moment, it is yours and no one else’s.
Erin Washington’s DON’T BREATHE TOO MUCH opens at Kirk’s Apartment on Saturday, November 9th from 6 - 9pm
On view by appointment until December 1st
