Robyn is the kind of supporting character that makes stories eternal. There’s no notion of her ever straying from the tasks she performs while the world moves around her, even when the book is closed. Never has there been a visitor, a sibling or a child to check in on her. She’s devoted to her plants, to the birds, and to her cat, Princess Nairobi...

In Ellie Hunter and McKeever Donovan’s exhibition Robyn, Good Enough’s space in Atlanta takes shape as a womb that hosts a circadian fantasy. Here, the viewer moves as child -- crouching and crawling their way through the room to the metronomic drone of Donovan’s mechanized sculpture. The walls envelop the viewer’s body with Hunter’s short story and wall drawing, Princess, which tells the story of a woman preoccupied with observing and tracking the daily movements of her neighbors from her seat on the back porch. In the trance of this distraction, she fails to notice that the humid air has dissolved the boundaries of her body and small animals have begun to take refuge in her gut. This languid surrender is undercut with the sinister, persistent motion of Donovan’s sculpture, Moon Dipper. The work draws upon the language of solar system dioramas: a motorized arm with a large moon on its end punctures the plane of a shelf that hosts an arrangement of painted orbs. The arm dips below this plane like a planetary marionette, methodically churning the passage of time.
