The Case of the Endless Yarn is a solo exhibition by Candace Hicks of artist books and dioramas based on the artist’s reading of fiction. The miniature domestic interior spaces have in common their appearance in crime fictions as murder scenes. Embellished with hidden text on the surfaces of walls, floors and furniture, viewers reveal the secrets with the aid of “decoders” in the form of colored films, UV light, and other optical tricks.
