a net is a barrier, is a vessel
a net is a repetition, of strands, of knots, of moving shapes
a net is a tool, an adornment
a net is wound, fastened, tied, floating; capable but barely there

this net separates life + leisure from work + art
with leaking holes
this net was a process
prepared for and made

and while physically formed, it was mentally a clearing of space
in order to make we prepare, clear, think, distance, and separate
for that one moment; the moment that reminds you
what the point was in the first place

17-21 July, 2017

For this first art showing in Closet Gallery, Lisa Theriault will share a video installation called work in the gaps of the net that re-enacts the invisible preparations that go into making, through the tying of a net.
