Where The Woozle Wasn’t, An exhibition by Rikard Thambert (SE), Magnus Broddy (SE), Shana Moulton (US)
“This…whatever-it-was…has now been joined by another…whatever-it-is… and they are now proceeding in company. Would you mind coming with me, Piglet, in case they turn out to be Hostile Animals?”
– From chapter three in A. A. Milne’s 1926 novel ‘Winnie the Pooh’, in which Pooh and Piglet go hunting and nearly catch a Woozle.
In this episode, Piglet and Pooh are walking in the forest. They have joined forces in order to track down something that might be a Woozle, following some paw-marks in the snow that Pooh discovered earlier that day. The further they trace, these paw-marks seems to multiply. It looks like there might have been more than just one of this something out there. The hunt continues through the winter forest landscape where Pooh and Piglet focus on the ground, with a blend of excitement and fear. There is a loopy, repetitive feeling closing in on them. At the end of this chapter, after a threshold of revelation, Piglet and Pooh are finally able to unlock their headband and turn the insight crack open: They had been walking in circles all along! The paw-marks they blindly followed was nobody’s but their own!
Within the exhibition, parallels are being drawn from the symbolic moment in the forest, to a broader spectra of psychological initiations considering the human individual, trekking towards a less frictional visit in reality.
Warmly welcome, with the acknowledgement that the other person is You.
