Sculptures “the viewer can dance with” by Haegue Yang:
“When thinking about the title, the human-like quality of these sculptures prompted me to consider archetypes whose lives testify deep commitment to a particular value. For instance: the warrior who fights for something with intensity; the believer who lives with absolute faith; and the lover who courageously exposes themself to the other.”
Dancer and yogi Lizica Codreanu, for whom Brancusi made costumes in 1922:
“[He] played a vinyl recording of Erik Satie’s Gymnopedies and invited the dancer to do a one-off performance in his studio, among sculptures.”
From Meredith Turnbull “Co-Worker” series:
“We have granted decoration a powerful place in our lives.”

Spatial models of clouds by Karel Malich.
Polished porcelain pieces from “Shibboleths and Synecdoche” (2015) by Jacob Gallant Raeder:
“A fascination with Bruxism, or teeth grinding, and Pica, the eating disorder where the sufferer has an appetite for ‘in-edible’ substances.”
Some new cups by Brian Rochefort, and some older ones.
Kate Newby at Laurel Doody:
“There is a big difference between using a rock and making a rock.”
