Door Handle (2014)

Shannon Garden Smith & Polina Teif

Adhesive vinyl print, 60" x 82”


Door Handle—a large vinyl print of a photograph of a found commercial image—contains a number of transformations between the corporeality of real world space and image flatness. Originally wrapping over a doorframe, the flattened image of a hand was reinstated with the new spatiality of its architectural ground. As a flattened out photograph of this original site of installation, Hand is spatially translated once more as a vinyl print that wraps around the Living Arts Centre Gallery wall.
