So after 6 months of work – The Opening.
Thursday 8th May. Thanks to Tony and Jo everything got installed on time and looked how i wanted it. Even a couple of last minute on the fly interventions worked, such as the Drift piece in dust of the parquet. Moving the parquet is no mean feat in itself. It doesn't look like a lot but believe me a thousand pieces, and it is dense, is not easy to move or re-assemble.
Openings are daunting and it's that culmination of time concentrated in the big hurrah, this is it, 6 months of my life. Also the chatting on, not seeing everyone, anxiety, chatting too long, nerves, excitement, making sure it's all ok for everyone – even yourself. It's al so much, too much. That big mix of STUFF. But i think it was good, i was pleased with the work, i was pleased that i had progressed my practice. The development process was just that.
Now, it's the hiatus. The it's all over. The what happens next.
