A response to Brexit, this large-scale installation depicts a conspicuously yellow forklift overwhelmed in its attempt to raise a wooden crate. A solitary choreography between two common objects of function conveys a sense of heavy exasperation. Monolithic in presence, the work sits isolated on a plane, highlighting the symbiotic yet lifeless existence of both objects.
