About the work
This edition, created by Claire Barclay on the occasion of her Bloomberg Commission at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2010, is inspired by architectural hardware such as keys, locks and chains. These overlapping silhouettes of door furniture signify both incarceration and the unlocking of treasures or secrets.
