Your Personal Hang-Ups
Excerpts from the curator's invitation to the artists:
"I am interested in your personal hang-ups:
not your lifetime neuroses
but your (ideal) hat, coat and/or clothes tree or hanger,
wall hooks, free standing clothes pole, rack, stand or small wall system.
And/or perhaps a companion cane or umbrella stand.
We all need visual and organizational cues in our domestic environments
to enhance and support our personal material culture. What could be more
enticing to attract those cues than a unique clothes tree/hanger/pole....a
linear form of grace, personality and function in your visual vocabulary to lure
attention and a hands-on relationship...a well-conceived and beautifully crafted
object of utility and grace, combined with aesthetic interest as the best of craft
traditions share...a seductive object with intended tactile interaction..."
