Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Uzbekistan (November, 2019) – Security is abundant at Registan square; each portal has a uniform guard or two. We hurried around as the light diminished, cascading light reflection on the exterior facade. Our last evening in Samarkand; we engaged in a little side hustle and gained late passage into the historical site. It was a lovely starry night.

“The future of museums is inside our own homes”

A quote from A Modest Manifesto For Museums (the last point out of 11), from the book The Innocence of Objects by Orhan Pamuk. We were so inspired. In fact, we went to Istanbul in October 2018 to visit his museum.

About half a year ago, when we were working on the archives of our work for the past forty years, we picked up the idea of bringing it into an exhibition - to build a portable, personal museum gathering work from the earlier days, to mix with new and recent pieces, an exhibition that can travel. This idea, of course, sprang also from Du champ’s Boîte-en-valise, a series of reproductions of works by himself tucked neatly in a suitcase, and which, he had personally produced 22 variant editions. In our humble case, the box - the first venue of our project, is our house. And as time goes by, variant editions will be generated for different locations.

DOUBLE DOUBLE: Box-in-a-Valise, the first chapter, Toronto 2020.
(Second chapter will be at Centre A, Vancouver, April 2021)

Exhibition will be launched on May 1, 2020 as planned, and running through September 30. Due to covid-19, exhibition will not be opened to the public until further notice.

However, some of the exhibits will be displayed online in the beginning of May, and a number of publications will be released in connection with the exhibition. More information will be updated at this page - http://doubledouble.org/dd2020

Adjacency, Series Two
written by Gary Michael Dault
based on photogaph by Lee Ka-sing


(Photograph by Lee Ka-sing: - Acrobatic exercise a late afternoon in early spring)

Number 28

Spring Poem

the spring rain
stops
and it feels like
never again

after the rain
there is no more
noise left

trucks and cars
pass
silent as clouds

a man
walking his dog
tries to whistle
and can't

the first bulbs
shimmer into the air
with no applause
or beamin

From the Notebooks (2010-2020)
by Gary Michael Dault

From the Notebooks, 2010-2020.
Number 27: Insect or Bat, March 17, 2020.

View archive

The poem scribbled under the watercolour painting reads:

Insect or bat
upside down,
its weightless chic
the talk of the town,
possible jackhammer,
needle of sickness,
odd in something
that has no thickness.
The creature hangs around
like a locket,
small enough
to put in your pocket

When will we know
who it's right to fear?
the distant foe
or the one right here?

 

Some Trees
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault

Number 16

Early each day the birds start singing from the top of the trees. With the breaking of the light, their voices descend through the moist air, bearing the music of their miniature hearts. When they sing, they radiate light. It's as if they bring on the dawn.
