This week, the challenge is ‘hope’.
This is a desperate, last-gasp hope, but hope nonetheless. Its’ bald but slightly plaintive expression is quite moving, I think. This piece of artwork is a story in two sentences but it is somewhat infuriatingly vague! I imagine that’s deliberate, to make you think about what might have happened.
This was an installation artwork at the Winter Gardens in Sheffield several years ago. I have no idea if it’s still there or the exact situation which inspired it, unfortunately. I don’t even know the artists’ name.
