The Golden Flower Pot began as a conversation between Cybele Cox and Ali Noble about the merits of ornamentation and imagination within their respective practices.  The exhibition title originates from the tale of Hoffmann, with its similar inquiry into the poet's vocation.  Like the tale, the exhibition proposes a separation of art and life, the poet's need for Atlantis; the retreat from reality into a realm of entities and powers in hyper reality.
