“Moor,” 2001, Handmade rope made by materials donated to the artist by
friends and family, 290 feet

“I asked my friends to give me materials to put into the rope. A lot of people gave me materials from friends who had passed away. Giving them to me to put into the rope is like giving them another life, another form. I wonder whether the viewer can uncover these stories through their experience of the object, whether these stories are somehow held in the material.” — Janine Antoni
