Tom Burr - Drunk Emily (2014)
"The title Drunk Emily is a direct reference to Emily Dickinson, a sublime poet and fetish character, who has become a mainstay for the artist.
Now viewed as one of pop figures of American culture, Emily Dickinson spent most of her life in her room on the top floor of her father’s home, isolated from the society of which she was nevertheless an acute observer.
For her, fantasy and imagination were the true means for acquiring an understanding of reality, and a way of conveying happiness.”
Not knowing when the dawn will come
I open every door.
