Paddock. Just hurried enough. Resting from the gale. Seams, Parture. We gathered together in the cracks just long enough to escape the gale, our hair blown back into a rotten mess, just long enough to whisper about what was next, about growing old and being wild. Match, unmatch, matched again and revealed in a paddock will be a being, undetermined and uncontrollable. Bejeweled with rock pinks, besotted with wet from the rains and fog.

"Resembling an abandoned foundation, many of which dot the fields at the Lantz’scher Skulpturenpark, the title references a paddock: a structure for the keeping of animals, especially horses, in order to offer them a controlled form of freedom of movement within bounds of control; speaking to the impossibility of taming wildness, freedom, and instincts. The production of this work was informed by the writings on wall gardens by the pioneering gardener and feminist Gertrude Jekyll."
