The Keyhole


I’ve always loved keys. When I was little we had an old bronze key to our house and I think that’s where my obsession began. You never really get an opportunity to pass through a keyhole so when I came across a keyhole  sculpture installed in the garden of  the Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street station I couldn’t resist running back and forth secretly hoping something magical would happen.

Jim Lambie, a Turner-prize nominated artist’s intallation the Secret Affair (aka Keyhole) is one of seven different coloured keyhole-shaped portals.
