PATRON is proud to announce our participation in Salón ACME featuring a project by Chicago based artist Daniel G. Baird titled, murmurings.
The tortoise is an emblem to a familiar origin of the world narrative. It is a frozen moment, capturing everything in its shell like a photograph.
For the past few years, the artist has developed a body of work sourced from the interior walls of a cave in rural Iowa, USA. Producing fragmented wall sections of this interior led to the reproduction of the entirety of its form through a highly technical laser scanning process. This cave re-presentation as information shares an affinity to the fossilized tortoise shell.
The shape that demarcates the entrance to this cave and the rest of the world has grown in significance in its repetition. It now takes the form of the mouths to fountains spilling water like a spring.
