egg-white moon / an eternity for fish

Paul Guilmoth

2018 - Ongoing

This work is a combination of two ongoing projects titled egg-white moon, and an eternity for fish. They are similar entities temporarily existing in two separate bodies. Both are being created in a rural New-England village. My family resides here. an unconditional home. ocean surrounds on all sides: a swamp resting at the center.

Land here is a backdrop on which generations of monuments, hopes, traumas, and failures are erected and eventually laid to rest. I search for the physical and spiritual manifestations of unshakable inheritances and shifting identities. Using methods of the stage, and my constant impulse to self-mythologize: my work describes a place and its ghost.
