"Frustrated by the fact that his biography so heavily overdetermines the reading of his work, he created a series of sculptures in which he used cardboard to pre-emptively package the work for the viewer.  This move was relevatory for Locke's practice, as through this material he could metonymically address migration, international economics, globalisation and ideas about personal and cultural protection and projection." - Kris Kiramitsu, Curator The Norton Collection
