Edging 7032019. Cotton thread on linen, 24 x 35cm, 2019

When you walk against the crowd but behind the people right in front of you.
/
No crossing over.
Parallel only, forwards only.
Edging only.
Independently rules applied themselves.
\
Physically satisfying the urgency daily.
Completely irresponsible for the outcome.
Cotton-picking dependence of the need.
Only concerned about the – not essential to make anything – need to produce, produce.
Reproduce.
/
Working class woman.
New mom.
Newest wrinkle.
\
Logging excluded thoughts and violated stories.
Rummaging with hands for attention spam.
Positioning until the next moment right after, left after.
Going over it again.
Going through it.
Again, again.
Been there or thereabouts.
Gone back.
Miniscule liberation.
A glimpse of smth in oneself.
Dependant on the one before this one.
Different each day.
Goes with the flow.
Scrutinises the focus!
Imperfections displayed to the bare eyes and the bare hands, too.
And again and again.
Jumping in front of other without informing any of it/self.
It leads the way.
It is the way it leads.
Everyday it prosperily returns.
A must/have/be something.
Make it.
Full.
Filled.
None of it is.
Perfect.
Laborious and relaxing at the same time !!!
Quiet murmur as the only relief for annoyance.
Protects and prevents the crash.
Discreet mind/hand/sweat performance.
Flushing out the lost preplanned.
/
When you are in a rush to get home without umbrella and a stranger tells you: its raining, get inside.
When a house is painted in color and the neighbours also follow the same height of the paint, but in a different tone.
When you tidy up in the morning of every morning.
Integrating for the sake of being, not as a choice.
Discomfort drives a search.
The edge of the white paint on a rural chapel building ends roughly and randomly in nearby grass and rocks.
When you know your way around your kitchen in the dark better than any other way.
When lost for words of baby loss or suicide make your way amongst others.
Street strikes with freely moving crowds.
Military/parade/ceremonies marching /zygiavimas/.
Ordinary gestures in organized mania.
It’s all the same but knot.
