“The Lulennial: A Slight Gestuary” at Lulu

A Slight Gestuary Pt. 2

The slight gesture a contemporary variant in lineage with the objet de vertu, extravagant ornaments who meekness was their spectacle - the supplicant's eggs crusted with jewels containing vessels and the time - and in which today old precious metals traded for preciousness. A Tuttelesque romanticism for the little things, to tiny knots, and the curve of a hand repeated. To the senitmental weight of string. Both contain their paradox, of the tiny object as spectacle, and the trinket as sublime. A fragile a-collectibility in imminently collectable packages, made for its document, the package of photography that delivers it.
