fix, (steel folding security gate with rivets removed and drill bits left in place)

FIX is an installation in a gallery that is 18 ft. wide and 29 ft. deep. A steel folding security gate is installed wall to wall across the 18 ft. width of the room. It cuts the 29 ft. length of the gallery into two sections, one third is accessible to the viewer and two thirds is not. The space behind the gate is left empty and all of the light in the gallery is focused on those three walls. All of the rivets have been removed from the gate, and the drill bits used to do it are left in their place. In this way, the entire system has been compromised and is held together by the tool which was used to take it apart.
