Window film applied to both sides of an existing door, with glazed panels 1700 x 600 mm, 2020.

This work on the door into my library was made in lockdown 2020. I was thinking about physical connection, both in reaction to the increased awareness of touch in the pandemic and because from mid February to mid April I was nursing my father in his final illness. Our hands used in care became very present to me. At this time, working from home as we all were, I put these hands around my library on the door, which must be touched to enter the room. So much trust and sharing is embodied in a library; a library book has been handled and handed down many times. Hands opening doors into rooms, and doors in the mind.
