Laceworks – David Borgonjon

  • Laceworks

    I made these pieces last year, when I was interested in the difference between the potential and the real(ized), points where pure potential is an object of desire; not money, or sex, but rather a certain kind of power - as in these laceworks, which turn the modal verbs that represent potential action and saturate a mind oriented towards the future, the possible, the potential, (e.g. I COULD make good art if I wanted to, I WOULD do that if only she didn't tell me to) into a pattern, and so diffuse or domesticate their power.
