Oh for the love of bricolage and assemblage!
I may be attempting to re-create these rotting gourds (possibly fetishizing them some more?) with love letters and subsequently ‘immortalize’ them through intimate portraits. To what extent can something be permanently immortalized? Is that even possible? Don’t photographs eventually fade? Machinery break? — Things run their course and life revitalizes.
An intimate portrait (landscape-style) of a dainty gourds & re-contextualized love letters.
