Epicurus believed that ‘pleasure is the first good’ – founder of ‘The garden’ – a place devoted to friendship, philosophical conversation and delight in simple pleasures of the senses’ The manifestation of a sort of epicurean dream. Something on the threshold between gesture and object. The practice of tenderness. Analogies tied explicitly to humanity. Familiar things saturated in communal energy and memory. Transforming material and matter affecting meaning and feeling. Repurposing objects in to atemporal vessels. For thinking and doing and doing and thinking. Giving tenderness a range of material expression. Highlighting the delicacy of certain forms and gestures. Fountain as refreshment, Fig as knowledge. A place to sit, an offering, a gift. Provide a gentle ambience. Fostering intrinsic moments of discourse between bodies.
