SEASON is PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE EXHIBITION Boys, Jokes and Things, FEATURING WORK BY Dawn Cerny.
Across the room
and over the fireplace
a mantel our mantle
We place the things on the mantel that hold value to us.
a photo a postcard.
There is a trophy.
We tastefully decorate with homey objects that taste mildly aspirational.
We display soft monuments made of paper and blood and plaster and yarn and limp erections and glue.
A copy of something by Isherwood by Forster by Auden by Döblin.
This is familiar.
This is so familiar it feels embarrassing.
Two candle sticks over a fireplace.
A matching mid-century sofa set.
The sacred and the profane sit on opposite sides of this domestic setting.
Our domestic setting.
