Edition of 12. 5.75 x 4.75"; 6 leaves including covers. Materials: paint, thread, cloth, recycled
cardboard, metal keys, and metal key holes. Japanese stab binding. Signed and dated by artist.
Keys attached by sewing to painted cardboard pages give a symbolic and minimal view of the
human life.. Hanne Matthiesen: "A kind of short story describing a life cycle: we enter life (key
hole = entrance), grow up, find our partner, make a family, grow old, pass away (key hole = exit)."
