Wolf at the door¬†was installed in a locker at Connolly House; a brutalist building in Dublin, currently used as a college. Wolf at the door was shown as part of the ‘Five Lamps Art Festival’ Visual Art programming.This is one of a series of objects I have made that use combustible, heat generating materials. The objects were contained in a locker, which was opened using a key attached to a heavy ring of animal fur. In wolf at the door ideas of value and survival are collected secretly by an imagined hoarder.
