Why “Curtains”? The title is double-edged. On the one hand it refers to the form of the structure – the fall of the sets of cords, the concealing/revealing nature of the curtain. But on the other, it has a metaphoric meaning. Taking its meaning from the theatre, “curtains” signifies the end of play, and on a personal level this work marks the probable last in a series of works involving cords, threads, strings, usually with other elements, constructed within particular environments.
