Bind examines the multiplicity of interpretations behind this word: a means of appending, a predicament, and the related word “bound”, transformed here into boundless or unending. The central piece of Bind appears as a long, semi-transparent textual panel. Here, a playful take on existentialist ruminations is inscribed, each letter on the eight foot long sheet individually printed to denote the monotonous passing of time. Behind this panel lies a circle of sculpted tongues, each embossed with words such as “can’t”, “will”, “guarantee”, “sure” -- phrases that ‘bind’ us through obligation once uttered. A rope with a Carrick bend lies at the bottom of the work, a symbol of infinity that echoes the ceaseless circle invoked in the text.
