The work is made from pressing the glove directly onto a plate, which was then acid etched. Short of printing directly from the glove it was the most direct and consistent way to make the work. The glove is the right hand of a pair I used to make the piece Quiver of Arrrows in New York, 2010. I normally get through a pair while building each of the larger shows. This edition has a close affinity to the installation Tools that see (the possessions of a thief), 2016: an exhibition that both became, and spoke of, the absence of the work and the author.

Mike Nelson came to prominence in the late 1990s, creating psychological environments by sifting through the debris of modern life. His installations are expansive dominions for assemblages of cultural detritus, often referencing specific works of literature and countercultural or failed political movements. Nelson was a resident artist at Camden Arts Centre in 1998.
