Lot 29: Tomorrow Will Be The First Day

Info

Finding beauty and emotional significance in repetition, Lionel Descostes was inspired by Vietnam's embroidery tradition to develop his single-thread stitching technique. The labour-intensive nature of his work is a critical reaction against the way creative production prioritises form over content. Tomorrow will be the first day calls attention to the thousands of stitches needed to create a single line. The entire piece is the sum of an immense number of unremarkable gestures, much like the way people live their lives.
