I guess I’m trying to find a structure where you and I get to throw in our opinions about stuff, our ideas about stuff and have those negotiated within the composition … as we’re at the service of the building…”
Published on the occasion of the artists’ exhibition of the same name at La Loge, Brussels, The Ceremony And The Spirit is based on the dialogue Taylor and Ethridge created with the space, a former freemason’s temple. The triangular relation between La Loge and the artists takes shape in the site-specific ceremonial objects created by Taylor, Ethridge’s photographs revealing the “spirit,” and a text consisting of emails between the two men.
