About ‘Lilac Hand’:
Lilac hand is the name of a hand car wash in Nottingham, England. The work was made at some of the many hand car washes that occupy road sides and old petrol stations around the East Midlands. At the time this work was made, the ‘migrant crisis’ as we now understand it had just started and the United Kingdom’s Independence Party were successfully campaigning for votes in the general election.
A year later, Great Britain held a referendum that decided the United Kingdom would be withdrawing from the European Union.
