good things come...
Blink and you’ll miss it. The words conjure up a kind of panic of not wanting to lose sight of the protagonist ‘thing’ by keeping it locked into view.
This ‘thing’ could be small, it might even be tiny (and therefore easy to miss) yet once found, the inevitability of time means that sooner or later you’ll have to give in and blink.
good things come... proposes a scenario that contradicts this quandary by suggesting a world where the size of an object and our attention upon it (as artists and spectators) is intrinsically linked to time.
Pursuing a dual concept governed by the multiple readings of this well-known phrase, good things come... presented small-scale selections and scaled-up collections. Complex objects of varying ages fused history with form, implying that the more time we have to spend with a thing (and therefore the longer we wait) the greater the reward (perhaps even in the smallest of ways).
good things come... was curated by artist Kevin Hunt in collaboration with Hannah Rose.
