Library Interventions. The Agents Respond: Abbie Canning

Library Interventions : Sharon Kivland

Abbie Canning : Absolve me Sharon, quia peccavi

An agent

Selected to research
The curiosity of pilgrims travelling to
The Vatican to stroke St Peters Foot;
(((seducing))) (((seducing))) (((seducing)))
Erotic Transference and Foot Fetishism.

A postcard slipped between two pages…
(((enticing))) (((probing))) (((enticing))) (((probing))) (((enticing)))


Hardbound; Catalogued; Shelved
With pages crisp and clear.
(((waiting))) (((waiting))) (((waiting)))
The reader searches;
The reader discovers.
The reader unlocks
& then confesses.

An agent reports
(alongside a book of confession)
(Freud on Holiday… your arrival in Rome?)
goings-on at The Vatican.
