Turning ‘ages – (LIGAR I) was made in 2012. It is the first of seven installations from the collective work ‘LIGAR’ It is a sensitive and thought provoking work, which comments on our relationship and connection with books and the written word.
The piece highlights the intimate and complex relationship between people, books and the everyday ephemera that is left forgotten or misplaced between their pages in the course of their owners’ lives.
The work has an accompanying blog page and visitors’ book, and has already inspired writing groups to organise alternative creative voiced events so acts as a catalyst for comment during the ever changing and transitional relationship between the physical book and the written word. It beautifully demonstrates that it will always be in our hearts, held dear.
The work is permanently exhibited at Westminster Reference Library, Leicester Square in the heart of London’s West End.
