Blackened larch poles are cut to the width of a transitional space, which is narrowed by a 3 cm frame, wedging each pole at an angle. Inside the frame is an airbrush drawing on Financial Times pink, of two worms, emerging, blinking in the bright light behind them. In a speech bubble, one asks “Is that The Sun or the Morning Star?” Nearby, the host’s recent subscription has produced an ample stack of editions of Morning Star. Open letter to its editors also available on request at the institution/gallery reception.
