Wheelchair with a difference

I'm coming down with something I think. So, just a quicky posting today, as happens rather often here, but there you go, you get what you pay for.

It's an untitled work by Mona Hatoum, and this is a scan in of a postcard I bought at the Tate (can't remember whether Ancient or Modern). I think it says a lot about what it feels like to help and to be helped, but done only with a piece of equipment, with not a person in sight. A clever pun I think.

If at first you don't get it, and some don't, well … you will.

I've not seen the thing itself.
