The elliptical openings in the containers alleviate their anonymity and suggest access, but do not reveal enough, or provide enough purchase to facilitate; rather, they add to the frustration of the process.


I nominate this installation for the Turner Prize.


The cat whimsically enhances the sense of ephemerality in this work. Also noteworthy is the thread of historicity for which the artist is well known. Thus, the installation stimulates the viewer to engage the work with a hint of angst and a profound query: Did the artist dust the books before putting them in the boxes?
