Talking

I am quite familiar with writing and delivering speeches.  It is, from experience, unusual for launches of shows at Argentea for the artist to speak.  Yet I always value hearing the words of the creator of any work; it provides insight and analysis that may not be otherwise apparent, especially at an opening when there is little quiet time to read catalogue citations.  So I shall be delivering a speech.  Knowing that the audience will, all being well, be a mixture of people that are familiar with me along with those I have never met, I need to be friendly but not too informal.  I know too that there will be art and photography specialists and practitioners in the room, so the talk needs to be informative but as a counterpoint, not too esoteric, to avoid losing the wider audience.

The first draft is done and it is a blend of thank you’s, context, invitation and celebration. It may yet alter but it has been satisfying making a draft.

I shall rehearse it during Thursday morning, the day of the launch.
