“And now, while the advocates of awfulness and sorrow Push their dripping barge up and down the beach, let’s eat Our brill, and sip this beautiful white Beaune.

True, the light is artificial, and we are not well-dressed. So what. We like it here. We like the bullocks in the field next door, We like the sound of wind passing over grass. The way you speak,

In that low voice, our late night disclosures…why live For anything else? Our masterpiece is the private life.”

-M. Strand

The project This Horse Is Confused contains a series of tableaux arranged by Collins and Hill on the walls of 166 N. 12th St. These constructions question how objects speak to one another. By using pairings that are both literal and obtuse, the personal is unapologetically combined with the cultural. Intuitive responses are heralded. The installation includes small sounds and quiet furnishings—so simple it laughs behind our backs.
