The sculpture is a replica of a greenhouse blind and a prop in reverse. The curtain is a recycled piece from a blind installed on top of one of the greenhouses of Wilhelma botanical gardens in Stuttgart, where the eponymous film was shot.

Title from Farnoosh Fathi’s book of poems Great Guns (Canarium Books: 2013)
