Where are you from?

UK but living in Toronto

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes it is. I came to Harbourfront for the day.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I love its open-endedness–in the simplicity there is space for it to be anything to you at any time. You can guess at the artist’s story or invent ever changing ones.
