Please water the plant and feed the fish


Juliette Blightman
Blightman's compositions are characterised by an objectivism that is gradually infected with the minute and shifting experience of passing time. 'Please Water the Plant and Feed the Fish' (2008), employs the simple placement of objects and turns the gallery into a live composition. Objects activate internal frames that echo the way in which the windows frame the external world. Richard Birkett
