In the press release for INCUBATE, I wrote: “INCUBATE is a soap box for home-grown creations and ideas – be they curatorial, poetic, architectural, philosophical. . . .”
But this, my gut tells me, was a premature statement – too definite for an event that hasn’t taken place. In fact, it seems false for me to articulate anything of what ‘INCUBATE’ is, beyond saying that it is on Sunday, 7:30PM, at Fair Folks and a Goat. I can also affirm, with the most definite of key board strokes, that ALL THE LETTERS OF “INCUBATE” MUST APPEAR CAPITALIZED!
I also feel confident in a slew of other things, but only things that INCUBATE is most definitely NOT – like a Chimpanzee, for one, and a Lemur, for another. And also a smiling infant. And also the hairline of the infant, which seems to be receding in the way of my balding roommate Taylor’s. INCUBATE is definitely not Taylor’s receding hairline, nor any receding hairline – except perhaps for the hairlines of those who come Sunday. INCUBATE is also definitely not a joke… but… INCUBATE is certainly not a stern warning either, nor is INCUBATE a statement at all. Or anything like a statement – like a manifesto, or an art work, or even an idea. But maybe INCUBATE will have some art to show, and I do believe a few art shows are planned to be shown, perhaps so to reason their reasons for being shown. At the same time, INCUBATE itself is without reason… but I do hope INCUBATE will be filled with reasons, even though reasoning the reasonless INCUBATE would be to reason a reason of which I believe has no reason being reasoned at all.
Anyway, you are invited to come Sunday to (at the very least) reason that which I cannot.
