Ivan Jurakic installed two lines of prosaic text onto the entrance way to the gallery «Looking one may never find/Wanting one may never know». His piece, entitled «Spell» examines the idea of a quest or search, particularly relevant to the person’s reason for entering the gallery/library space. His work suggests entering as an act of faith that one should come to with an open mind. While inside the space, one may discover things that were unlooked for or unexpected but invaluable.
