Loboda's artistic practice examines the meanings of folkloric signs and symbols. This large circular structure extends her enquiry into the ways in which different cultures endow objects with mystical significance. The straw, bamboo and steel structure is designed to resemble a chinowa, a sacred threshold in the Shinto religion in Japan, which purifies the space around it. The sculpture both endorses the hallowed space of the gallery and acknowledges its often-misplaced aura of spirituality.
