Hands is a physical representation of an excess of photographs of lost gloves and mittens taken over the last 5 years. One by one, like a catalogue, the artists’ hands articulately reproduce the forms of photographed mittens from a current collection of 1,279. The work invites a sitting viewer to zoom in and out of the vocabulary, gently nudging him into an embodied experience that isn’t about a particular narrative or state, but rather an unfolding of perceptions, like a stop-motion film. Each gesture attempts to honor the lost mittens infusing their trampled forms with dimension, flesh and rigorous attention to detail. Hands performs collection that gains force in the accumulation of gestures elongated over time.
