I’ve been spending all this time reading through the press releases that Andrea Rosen puts out regarding FGT shows. They are all so incredibly beautiful.
Something I found, and remembered reading before, was:
As someone said to me – I can’t remember now who it was – it is really remarkable that when you wake up in the morning you nearly always find everything in exactly the same place as the evening before. For when asleep and dreaming you are, apparently at least, in an essentially different state from that of wakefulness; and therefore, as that man truly said, it requires enormous presence of mind or rather quickness of wit, when opening your eyes to seize hold as it were of everything in the room at exactly the same place where you had let it go on the previous evening. That was why, he said, the moment of waking up was the riskiest moment of the day. Once that was well over with without deflecting you from your orbit, you could take heart of grace for the rest of the day.
And I thought about this in light of Torres, even though it wasn’t quoted for his press release, but another artist’s instead. I really couldn’t think of anything more perfect though.
