Bluetooth Bartlebooth

curtain, 200 x 150 cm, fabric and embroidery, 2016

shown in chambers a show curated by Passe-Avant.

Taking together Georges Perec’s La vie mode d’emploi’s main character name - Percival Bartlebooth, another Percival, another ghost - with the Bluetooth technology sign the curtain is embroidered with (two merged letters from runic alphabet), the piece wavers between unity and multiplicity, presenting a ubiquity in need of proximity to function.
