Brass plaque, 18 x 5.5 cm

Above the door, a plaque reads ‘Temenos’.Temenos is a Greek concept related to the border between worlds, a place marked off as holy or separate.The phrase is also used by founding psychoanalyst Carl Jung as representing a ‘squared circle’, or a space where thought and mental work can take place.The courtyard of IMMA lies beyond the door over which this work is placed, and it contains a circle within a square.Taken as a point of departure from the exhibition into the wider museum,Walker and Walker leave this plaque as a statement of intent.
