The Babble On group exhibition was on at New York’s Rockaway Topless, which ran from July 2 to July 17, 2016.
The site-specific installation became a space for “no answers, a facilitation of intimacies, negotiations and friendships in the making.” The artists re-created a fountain-cum-well with benches for sitting, talking and observing with an additional sound element via the feature’s spout, using the water directly from Rockaway Beach.
“Hi – it’s been some time, I hope you remember me. We first met at the pavilion where we accidentally rubbed shoulders. I saw you through slivers of light as we walked amidst the living walls of that labyrinthine space. I watched your feet as you wandered, and saw you carve an inscription into the wall, was it your name? Eventually we joined hands to greet, exchanging some of the lingering green dust that remained on our fingers. I carried around a trace of you and it the rest of that day.”**
