Welcome Panel

Welcome Panel, 146x100x180cm, bronze, 2008

Welcome Panel is a bronze panel of banning (forbidden) signs that are engraved onto bronze. I collected a variety of public signage “don’ts” and then used them to create my own prohibition signs from my daily experience. It is like recording the evidence that taboos of all sorts, enforcing social conventions, creating rituals of behaviour, cultural protocols, restricting and moving our minds. In fact boundaries, rules and constrictions are the factors that tempt and encourage human beings to do exactly the opposite, secretly wishing to indulge in all that is forbidden.
