The process whereby a protein molecule assumes its intricate three-dimensional shape
A geological process that causes a bend in a stratum of rock
An action that changes the shape of a thing

To make compact by bringing from an extended to a closed position
To bring from a compact to an extended position: unfold
To place together and intertwine. To envelop or clasp: enfold
A cover for keeping loose papers together
A fenced enclosure for livestock
A flock of sheep
A congregation

A thing capable of collapsing or being collapsed
A doubling of one layer of material over another
To bring in close to the body
Crease. Forceful folding. Evidence of a forceful fold.
To discontinue. To close. To fail. To withdraw in defeat. To give in, buckle under pressure, weaken, or collapse from exertion.

To aerate by blending a light ingredient into a heavier mixture with a series of gentle turns

The form of connection that follows the general principles of a Deleuzian concept: open-ended & inexhaustive, non-exclusive & unlimited, exterior & infinite.

This exhibition/installation/painting will be changed (folded, unfolded, rehung, collapsed, aerated etc) by the artist at irregular intervals throughout its run. Changes will be documented and available to view.

This work is dedicated to the memory of Mary Hoban (nee Staunton)
