Leonov’s Glove by Damian Magee, as part of the ‘Toilet Light Box Show’
This work references the myth that astronaut Alexei Leonov lost a glove during the first spacewalk.
The single glove is amongst the most common of objects to be found lying in public streets and parks: lost and abandoned, separated from a partner that together provide warmth, comfort and protection.
The notion that a single glove drifts aimlessly through space speaks of the extent of human detritus, while evoking a sense of the infinite tragedy of personal loss.
Channel and cleanse the Spirit through a premeditated expulsion.
