This edition forms part of a new body of work by Laura Eldret that reflects on the physicality of familial life and wider notions of intimacy, togetherness, needs and care. Generated from interviews with mothers, the work explores these concerns in an era of increased physical distance and isolation. Consisting of a fabric hanging, a video work and a print edition, Close (enough) centres on a new linear pattern that invokes boundaries of touch, pleasure and pain. The video is an intense collage of interview extracts, offset against visual imagery of a mirror ball, glassware display, patterns and text.

These editions form part of a larger body of work commissioned by Procreate Project with support by Arts Council England
