“History Made By Artists” at Clearing

"History Made By Artists" at Clearing

These artists create history one by crafting an atemporal artifact, another evincing sedimented layers of waste as time markers, and another by writing a poem for the possibility of. But really they create it through the exhibition's reverence towards it. History only exists when it is cared for, or else it just disappears, and so artists treat it with a tender weightiness, with a disproportionate amount of veneration, a wide berth.
